Scentry III-GFRAB a utomatic propane and natural gas shut off system: gas sensor at unit responds to explosive gasses Propane (LP) <5200 PPM or Natural Gas / Methane <12,200 PPM. Automatically closes gas valve. Option: add remote sensors near gas using appliances. Made in USA. Additional options:battery back-up, remote gas sensors and remote alarms. Note: gas valve is not included: requires .5 inch, .75 inch or 1 inch diaphragm type valve with compression spring closing and soft seat construction . Battery option keeps pilot lights lit during intermittent power failures.12V output offers a phone dialer option (no dialer included) to alert owners of vacation homes, etc. when unsafe condition occurs. Supports up to 5 remote sensors (purchase separately).
GFRAB stands for Gas sensor, Feet for mounting, Remote sensor capability, Alarm (internal, 90 db) and Battery back-up compatible.
Safety First USA Gas Valve Controller (GFRAB) Operation:
Loud alarm at a 10% (LEL) lower explosive level. Methane (natural gas) alarm point varies but is near 10% level.
Two minutes of electrical power required for monitor operation.
Green LED: power is on, no leak
Red LED: alarm goes to a BEEP- BEEP mode, gas valve controller closes the gas valve to stop gas flow to protected appliances.
To reset the unit, ventilate area to remove un-burned fuel and push red reset button.
Once an explosive gas is detected, this gas monitor sounds alarm and can activate equipment to remove dangerous gas build up in a building. Ex. can activate a ventilation fan. Gas alarm and gas monitor have easily accessible terminal strips for fast and secure wire connections, backup battery charging, low battery detection and sensor failure alarm.
The GFRAB model includes the gas sensor, mounting feet, remote ready, alarm and battery and gas valve shut-off/controller. NOTE: Must be used with a Scentry III gas valve (sold separately) or a compatible gas valve. Use with .5 inch, .75 inch or 1 inch compatible valves. Optional battery keeps a pilot light lit in case of power outage.
Each Scentry gas sensor is calibrated in a gaseous atmosphere: calibration sets the alarm to sound at 10% of the lower explosive level (LEL) of the combustible gas. This is not a carbon monoxide alarm as it has only a combustible gas alarm sensor.
Note: Sensor reacts to concentrations of fumes from Alcohol, Butane, Gasoline, Hydrogen (from Charging battery’s), Kerosene, LP Gas, Propane, and Natural Gas (Methane).
