Specifically, this safety interlock warrants biannual inspections to confirm airflow detection and gas regulation mechanisms are optimal.


An adept engineer should comprehensively assess the system’s components, encompassing sensors, valves, and conduits.

Deciphering the Gas Interlock System

Central to the Gas Interlock System is a sensor tailored to monitor airflow, evaluating the duct’s and fan’s efficiency within the ventilation matrix. If parameters are met, the sensor greenlights the gas flow.


A commercial fan speed moderator works in tandem with the gas interlock, adjusting the pace of both inlet and exhaust fans. This pivotal component ensures the system’s adaptability to the ambiance, thus adhering to stipulations. It also circumvents any inadvertent gas supply halts if fan speeds dwindle.
