Merlin LPG Gas Detector X Range
The Merlin GDP2 Gas Detection Two Zone Control Panel with remotely mounted Detectors for LPG, Natural Gas and Carbon Monoxide are now available from Gas Equipment Ireland.
A Heat Detector Fusible Link and an audible and visual alarm/beacon are also available in this range.
The micropoint Cooker hose CHMP1M now has a straight swivel bayonet end in place of the angled bayonet end piece. The reason for the change is to facilitate easier installation with less torsion and less space required. The product code and price remains the same.
CHMP1M is the hose supplied in kits CHKIT1 and CHKIT2.
We acknowledge that as per Irish Standards I.S. 813:2014 +A1; 2017, Domestic Gas Installations, B.126.96.36.199 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the current European standard for the design and manufacture of cylinder regulators, which supersedes EN12864, which is withdrawn.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.
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.
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.
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
The rubber LPG micropoint Cooker hoses (CH3809) are now discontinued by all manufactures. They are superseded by CH3810, a Flexible Stainless Steel micropoint hose with a PVC covering, these are suitable for both LPG and Natural Gas and conform to EN 14800:2007
The conventional design low pressure jumbo regulator, MTR001, has been discontinued and superseded by LR29AR, a new design which prohibits connection and disconnection when the on/off valve is in the on position, in line with eu legislation. The LR29AR conforms to EN 16129 2013.
