Marine gas detection designed to meet the current marine requirements and legislation for portable gas monitors and detectors, detailed in both the the Maritime Authorities of the Paris and Tokyo Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) and the Maritime Safety Committee MSC Resolution A.1050(27), ExxonMobil MESQA 2010. Safety Gear Store encompasses several products designed to make the deployment, testing and calibration of portable gas detectors straightforward at sea by utilising your existing crew to carry out routine maintenance thus avoiding the costly landing of gas detectors for routine maintenance and calibration.
At its ninety third session in May 2013, the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) approved the new draft SOLAS regulation XI-1/7 “Atmosphere testing instrument for enclosed spaces”, which entered into force on 1 July 2016.
This new regulation makes it mandatory for all ocean going ships to which SOLAS applies to carry on board an appropriate portable atmosphere testing instrument or instruments. As a minimum, these instruments shall be capable of measuring concentrations of oxygen, flammable gases or vapours, hydrogen sulphide and carbon monoxide prior to entry into enclosed spaces. The new regulation also requires that suitable means are to be provided for the calibration of all such instruments.
