Monday, March 07, 2005
Martek Marine were awarded the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) ‘wheelmark’ approval for their range of fixed gas detection systems. The systems can be used on any type of vessel where there is a potential danger of a fugitive gas leak. The systems are most commonly used on LNG and LPG carriers as well as all types of tankship, from bunkerbarges to ULCC’s.

The MM6000, is the only intrinsically safe infra-red gas detector in the world approved for use in gas dangerous spaces on LNG carriers. MM2000 combined with MM1200 & MM1000 gas detectors is the only addressable gas detection control system on the market to carry MED certification.

The MM5000 system, is a sequential gas sampling system utilised for ballast tanks / void space gas detection on tankships of all types and on LNG carriers where fixed heads are impractical.
