The SafeAir offers a simple cost effective panel for ventilation interlocking in a commercial kitchen.
It is a ventilation interlock system designed for use within commercial kitchens, to aid sites in meeting BS6173:2009.
It can also monitor for air quality when fitted with the required detectors.
The easy to use LCD provides clear messages giving real time 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 SafeAir if the ventilation is not switched on, the LCD display informs the operator that the fans are off.
In addition when fitted with a Medem carbon dioxide detector (CO2) it monitors the CO2 level to ensure that HSE set levels are not exceeded. Should the carbon dioxide level rise above the set low alarm level the panel LCD will advise staff to “increase the ventilation .” If the maximum allowed level of CO2 is reached the system will isolate the gas and advise the staff to ventilate the kitchen.
The carbon dioxide PPM levels will be displayed on the LCD.
For the interlocking of the ventilation our current monitoring unit (CM2M-K) or pressure differential switches can be used.
