B. The Flow of Gas Through Gas Secura
Gas enters the Gas Secura directly from the cylinder
Gas is channeled into a chamber, where it passes the shutoff element
Gas is then channeled up out of the chamber and past the gauge pin
Gas then exits
The various uses of Gas Secura all follow from this sequence. Importantly, the gauge pin is directly attached to the gauge, and acts as a pressure detector, which causes the gauge to show changes in gas pressure via movement in the needle.
C. How Gas Secura Stops Major Leak ?
The shutoff mechanism works on the Bernoulli principle. A sudden increase in gas flow (for example from the hose rupturing) changes the pressure around the shut off element, lifting it up and causing it to plug the exit to the chamber and stop the flow of gas completely.
The shutoff element will stay in this position until you push down on the gauge. The gauge pin then pushes the shutoff element back down into the chamber, so resetting the Gas Secura ready for normal operation
D. How Gas Secura detects Minor Leakage (Leak Test) ?
The Gas Secura can also be used to check for minor leaks in your gas system (from the Gas Secura to the stove) by carrying out the following steps:
We recommend use of LPG system after testing for leaks.
Minor leak test should be conducted under the guidance of a qualified gas technician.
When a leak is detected do not try to fix it yourself but have it rectified by a qualified gas technician.
DO NOT under any circumstances test for leaks with an open flame.
Turn off all appliances stove, Gas Secura and regulator. Turn on the tap of the Gas Secura and the regulator. Depress the Gas Secura gauge a few times.
Turn off the tap on the Gas Secura while leaving the tap of the regulator on.
Now observe the needle in the gauge for 5 to 10 minutes. If there is no change in the position of the needle, then your LP gas system is fine and can be used as normal.A drop in the needle position indicates a minor leak in the system. Proceed to Step 4 to find the leak.
Using a brush, apply a soapy solution (little detergent dissolved in water) liberally to all parts of the fittings and hose of the system.
A bubble or bubbles will arise at the spot of the leak.
