Cylinder Regulator Compliance

We acknowledge that as per Irish Standards I.S. 813:2014 +A1; 2017, Domestic Gas Installations, B.3.4.2.1 that ‘Only a regulator with over pressure or excess flow protection shall be installed’. We acknowledge that EN16129 is the current European standard for the design and manufacture of cylinder regulators, which supersedes EN12864, which is withdrawn. Since 31/12/2015 a regulator offered for sale marked with EN12864 is not compliant.

All of the regulators which we offer for domestic installations have either excess flow or over pressure protection.

Be aware that there is non compliant product on the market in abundance.

Morco FEB24 Combi Boiler Range Hydraulic Assembly Unit

The MCB2191 complete hydraulic assembly is no longer available, we are now able to supply some of the individual components or, alternatively a hydraulic assembly repair kit for the FEB24 combi boiler range.

The following spare parts are available:

Product Code: MCB2193 – Hydraulic Assembly Repair Kit

The above repair kit includes the items below which can also be purchased separately:

Product Code: MCB2192 – Diaphragm Housing

Product Code: MCB2256 – Diaphragm and Spindle O Ring Kit

Product Code: MCB2160 – DHW Heat Exchanger

In the vast majority of cases, existing assemblies can be repaired by either the repair kit or one of the individual parts. However, the diaphragm housing is the only moulded plastic part from the hydraulic assemblies which is available. If any of the other moulded plastic parts fail, unfortunately a repair is not possible.

Instructions will be included with each repair kit to assist engineers.

Forklift Truck Cylinders

With regard to the correspondence in circulation originating from the H.S.A. , I would like to point out that the cylinder in question is a single valve cylinder, which in most cases are used only in a cylinder exchange system(i.e. filled by bulk gas suppliers only) and are filled to 80% capacity by measuring the amount of gas by weight or volume. The multi valve forklift truck cylinders that we supply are different in that they have a fixed maximum liquid level gauge(vent valve), where 80% fill is invariably definitively indicated when a steady white mist is emitted from this valve which is open during filling, ensuring no more than 80% fill.

2190 Piercable Gas Cartridge

Legislation regarding the 2190 pierceable Gas Cartridge changed last year where the cartridge now contains a system inside, a self sealing valve, where you are now able to remove the cartridge from the appliance without gas escaping, whereas before the gas would escape until depleted. The 2190 Pierceable Gas Cartridge which we supply, with immediate effect, conforms to BS EN417:2012 4.3.1
