It's worth knowing about gas installations on board! New installations have to be consistent with those of the EG's standard of 30mbar, or 50 mbar (under the 1996 standard) is allowable for older installations.
Gas cylinders must be isolated in their own area, whereby at their lowest position, they must have an area of at least a 2 cm Ø of ventilation around them.
Gas installations on boats must be rated and proofed at G 608, according to the experts.
Gas hoses and gas pressure regulators must be replaced 6 years after being manufactured under the regulations of BGR146. In the case of new installations, we recommend to only use a pressure reducer with a manometer. For most gas hoses, there is an expiration date located on the unit itself. Most of the hoses are protected from sun exposure, but all hoses deteriorate with time, and in order to prevent an accident from occuring, a hose must be replaced regularly. If a hose shows signs of small tears while being bent, it is already too late.
Please note: Gas hoses should all be replaced 6 years after being manufactured!
