TECHNICAL INFORMATION

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The gas distribution central shall be installed in a separate, ventilated room. Up to 8 cylinders, can be stored in the same room. If there are more cylinders, there shall be one room for acetylene and one for oxygen.

The cylinders are fixed to the central, and connected to high pressure mainfolds with flexible high pressure hoses. The manifold leads the gas to a central pressure regulator, where from the gas is distributed through fixed piping to the various gas outlet stations onboard.

The safety valve of the central regulator must be connected to a pipe to carry any escaping gas out on the open deck.
