The location of the gas boiler ↑ Normative documents allowed to place the boiler heat power up to 30 kW inclusive, in the kitchen, (this requires a separate gas line), provided that ceiling height and room volume more than 220 cm and 7.5 cubic meters respectively.
Gas Pressure Proving & Gas Detection Designed to help meet BB100 and UP1 and to help overcome uncertainty and risk when reopening a closed gas valve in a boiler room the Medem combined gas proving and detection system can also provide automatic restart after a power loss or fire alarm activation to reduce the potential for site downtime.. Gas Detection with Valve Control We have gas
The source of the natural gas is usually in the boiler room, an enclosed area that is not frequented very often, which increases the risk of a leak going undetected. A leak not only wastes expensive fuel but could result in an explosion causing loss of life and structural damage.
Ideally meters should be located in an approved built-in or semi-concealed meter box, on the wall closest to the gas main. Meters can be installed in garages or inside the building. The service entry will be above the damp proof course using an above ground entry tee and will continue in steel pipe terminating at the meter control valve.
