The evolutionary design of the MM5001™ is a major technical leap forward in fixed gas detection technology.

  • Easy touch screen navigation
  • PLC based – increased reliability and low maintenance
  • Smaller systems – lower costs and less space
  • Up to 21 sampling points per cabinet and integration of fixed-point sensors

Ballast Tank Gas Sampling

The MM5001™ gas detector is a permanently installed, integrated sequential gas sampling system which can be used for detecting and providing alarms in the presence of explosive and toxic gases in ballast tanks, void spaces and cargo tanks. This is in line with the three core pillars of Martek Marine; ship safety, performance and crew welfare.

The system comprises a central control cabinet with a touchscreen panel that displays gas concentrations and alarm status. At the heart of the system are the main PLC controller, gas analyser and a pre-sampling circuit. A calibration-free, high-performance infrared sensor provides the ultimate reliable flammable gas analysis.
