MED Approved GMI PS200 Package
The GMI Marine Approved PS200 Package a kit built around GMI's Non-Pumped variant of the PS200 Muli Gas Detector 4 gas personal monitor with aspirated pump capabilities (sold seperate) for pre-entry checks in confined spaces.
The PS200 Shipswheel approved Multi Gas Monitor is perfectly suited to help vessels comply with SOLAS requirements which dictate the need for gas detection onboard vessels.
This package includes the following:
5 x GMI PS200 Multi 4 Gas Detector (Non-Pumped)
1 x GMI PS200 Auto Bump & Calibration Station
1 x 60L Cylinder Mix Bump/Calibration Gas
1 x Demand Flow Regulator
GMI PS200 MED Multi Gas Detector (Non Pumped)
A robust and accurate portable gas detector, the Personal Surveyor (PS200 Series) provides unrivalled protection in confined space applications with audible and visual alarms in the event of exposure to flammable or toxic gases.
Detecting and displaying up to 4 gases simultaneously, PS200 is suitable for a host of applications in a variety of industries. Pre-entry checking can be carried out with optional internal sampling pump, and diffusion operation ensuring maximum battery life in confined spaces.
GMI PS200 AUTO BUMP & CALIBRATION STATION
The PS200 Auto Bump/Calibration station is a calibration and bump dock specifically designed for the GMI PS200 portable gas detector.
When the GMI PS200 Gas detector is docked in the Auto Cal station then it will automatically carry out a bump or function test to confirm the meter is functioning and passed for daily use. If the unit fails the bump test then the Autocal will proceed to calibrate the unit. The unit requires minimal training for use and records all event data and calibration records to a USB stick which you then upload to a PC to save the records.
60L Bump/Calibration Gas
60 Litre - 2.5% Methane - 500ppm CO - 50ppm H2S - 18%O2, balance N2 (Disposable Cylinder)
For use with the PS200 Bump & Calibration Station

A new regulation aimed at protecting seafarers who need to enter enclosed spaces, by requiring ships to carry portable atmosphere testing equipment on board, enters into force on 1 July 2016.
Seafarers may be called upon to enter enclosed spaces on ships to manage or obtain equipment, assist a colleague or to inspect vital engine parts.
Enclosed spaces are spaces that have limited openings for entry and exit, inadequate ventilation and are not designed for continuous worker occupancy. The atmosphere in any enclosed space may be oxygen-deficient or oxygen-enriched and/or contain flammable and/or toxic gases or vapours, thus presenting a risk to life.
The new regulation XI-1/7 Atmosphere testing instrument for enclosed spaces in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), requires ships to carry an appropriate portable atmosphere testing instrument or instruments, capable, as a minimum, of measuring concentrations of oxygen, flammable gases or vapours, hydrogen sulphide and carbon monoxide, prior to entry into enclosed spaces.
Enclosed spaces covered by the regulation include, but are not limited to, cargo spaces, double bottoms, fuel tanks, ballast tanks, cargo pump-rooms, cofferdams, chain lockers, void spaces, duct keels, inter-barrier spaces, boilers, engine crankcases, engine scavenge air receivers, sewage tanks, and adjacent connected spaces. The list is not exhaustive and enclosed spaces should be identified and listed on a ship-by-ship basis.
