Fixed Gas Detection

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know what happens when gas is left to its own devices. Unmonitored, it’s a death trap, with gas explosions, toxic poisoning and asphyxiant poisoning possible at any point. Ballast rooms, air conditioning, refrigeration and pump rooms suddenly become a lot more menacing once you realise the degree of danger lurking in them.

When looking at how much gas is onboard, and the degree of uses, it’s inevitable that there will be gas leaks and hazardous temperature changes from time to time. The Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Methane (CH4), and other combustible gases on your ship need watching vigilantly. Methane alone is 28 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, so a methane leak needs catching extremely quickly.

When you’re looking for fixed gas detection systems, you need to know you’re going to get intelligent and failsafe round the clock protection, using bespoke solutions which cover all of the gas detection risks onboard your vessels.

This is why we’re not a ‘one size fits all’ solution – specialised in-house engineers can create a fully addressable gas detection system designed to fit and future proof your exact gas detection needs.

Consulted by IMO as an industry authority, we’re not hiding that we’re totally disrupting the marine technology industry with innovation that keeps you safe and compliant.

Compliant Coverage On The Team

Let’s be realistic – no ship uses eyes and ears for protection now, it’s a legal requirement that you have the correct equipment in place to monitor and protect your crew and vessel. All of Martek Marine’s gas detection systems are guaranteed to be SOLAS and ISGOTT compliant.

Installing the MM2000™ on crude oil vessels also means you’ll be ready for charter by ExxonMobil giving you a key competitive advantage. The system detects and protects crew members from the highest threat – hydrogen sulphide at ExxonMobil Minimum Environmental and Safety Criteria levels.

It doesn’t stop there, and you need to know your legislation inside out to make sure you’re fully compliant. There isn’t a single maritime regulation we don’t know about – as marine industry experts consulted by the IMO, not only does our equipment keep your gas detection covered but your legal role is covered properly too.

Fixed Gas Detection With No Blind Spots

Underpinning all of Martek Marine’s products are our three core pillars – ship safety, performance and crew welfare. We know that you need to cover all angles, so we made sure we could with our gas detection provision.

Trying to adapt rigid systems to the specific needs of your vessel could be an accident waiting to happen. You only need one blind spot, or one sensor to be misplaced and your gas protection is below par.

In terms of gas detection, below par isn’t acceptable and decades of intimate industry experience are why we’re leading from the front.

Adapt your fixed gas detection system to the specifics of its location with our MM2000™ where up to 32 addressable sensors can communicate with the control panel giving you full flexibility and protection tailored perfectly to your needs.

We’ve made maintenance much easier by eliminating moving parts, creating a unit small enough to fit compact rooms and building it in a way that requires one-man calibration.

Installation costs are lower due to loop sensor cables without any reduced performance to the continuous monitoring of all sensors.

Monitor your emissions with Evolution EMS™ is the world’s first NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions monitoring system.

Detect the presence of explosive and toxic gases in ballast tanks, void spaces and cargo tanks using MM5001™ – our integrated sequential gas sampling system.

Not all fixed gas detection systems are created equal but with Martek Marine’s fixed gas protection systems you’ll know without a doubt that we’re providing the very best in continuous area and personnel protection.
