General Monitors announces that its most popular advanced gas and flame detectors now meet the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) for Det Norske Veritas’ (DNV) Offshore Standards as well as DNV·GL Type Approval.
MED is the European Directive requiring that gas and flame detectors installed in marine environments be tested to specific standards and inscribed with the “wheel mark” of approval. The wheel mark indicates that the products have passed testing to industry standards and are deemed safe and certified for use in marine applications/environments.
The General Monitors gas and flame detectors that now carry the MED wheel mark include: the FL4000H Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector, the S4000CH Combustible Gas Detector, the IR400 Point IR Gas Detector and the IR4000S Single-Point Gas Monitor. They protect people, equipment and offshore facilities worldwide.
To support the needs of its global customer base, General Monitors also has obtained Type Approval for these products to ensure qualification for use in all marine markets. The following products are DNV·GL Type Approved: the FL4000H MSIR Flame Detector, the S4000CH Combustible Gas Detector, the IR400 Point IR Gas Detector, the IR4000S Single-Point Gas Monitor, the IR5500 Open Path Infrared Gas Detector and the Gassonic Observer-i Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector.
DNV·GL is the world’s leading ship and offshore classification society, the leading technical advisor to the global oil and gas industry and a leading expert for the energy value chain including renewable and energy efficiency. It is one of the top three certification bodies in the world. DNV·GL approval assures General Monitors’ customers that its gas and flame detectors have been independently tested and found to meet the highest industry standards while supporting the values of safeguarding life, property and the environment.
