VGPS-K-CO2

VGPS-K-CO2

The VGPS-K-CO2 offers a complete single panel package patented by Medem UK

VGPS-K-CO2, a gas pressure proving system with ventilation interlock and CO2 monitoring designed for use within commercial kitchens.

Very easy to use, the LCD displays clear messages giving real information rather than just LED indications.

It is a requirement that any mechanical ventilation within a kitchen environment (both supply and extract) is switched on and running before the use of any gas appliances can take place. With the VGPS-K-CO2 if the ventilation is not switched on, the LCD display informs the operator that the fans are off and to switch on the fans and restart the panel.

With the fans on and running the system will then perform a downstream integrity check using our patented “Differential Pressure Proving” method.

In addition, it monitors the carbon dioxide level to ensure that HSE set levels are not exceeded. Should the carbon dioxide level rise above 2,300 ppm the panel LCD will advise staff to “increase the ventilation fan speed at the speed controllers.” The maximum allowed level of carbon dioxide is 2,800 ppm, as published in HSE catering sheet 23 revision 1. At this level, the system will isolate the gas and advise the staff to ventilate the kitchen.

Gas pressures and carbon dioxide levels can be displayed on the LCD by pressing the “gas on” or “alert” LED on the fascia.

From within the panel the engineer has several “engineer functions” which can be used to aid in the setup of the system – such as displaying in real time both the inlet and outlet pressure at the gas valve (mbar) and the ability to power the valve at a button press, it is with functions like these that for example a “valve let by indication” check be performed with ease.

For the interlocking of the ventilation our current monitoring unit (CM2M-K) or pressure differential switches can be used.

    5 Year Warranty

    Medem’s industry leading five-year warranty is a demonstration of the company’s confidence in the quality and design of our products.

    This applies to the main panels and sender units, gas detectors carry a two year warranty.

    Where we commission an installed system the warranty is extended from five to ten years. At the time of commissioning photos and gas pressure readings are recorded along with other relevent details of the installation. A 24 hour help line number and serial number is attached with the panel and all details are then entered on to the Medem database.

Why fit gas pressure proving in a commercial kitchen

We are still on occasion asked to supply a system that performs ventilation interlock alone - no gas pressure proving. Although we do have such a system, it was....
