Leak Detection

Gas leak detection equipment is used mainly on commercial and industrial type installations. The equipment used monitors the air in the vicinity of the appliances where gas is used, and should a leak occur, the sensor or sniffer will detect the level of gas present, and the sensor then sends a message to the control unit. When this happens and a leak is detected the control unit raises an audio alarm, as well as automatically shutting off a solenoid valve which is fitted within the gas line. Please call for more information.

Sprinkler System

We have fabricated and installed numerous sprinklers systems over the 20 odd years. The systems are all build and installed according to engineer’s drawings and design. We have also done large water pump stations from fabrication to commissioning. Our fully equipped workshop facilities can accommodate any form of small to medium pipework or steel fabrication.

Gas leaks could prove to be a hazard in the workplace and home, therefore it is quite common in different commercial, residential and industrial set ups around the globe to utilise Gas Leak Detection services and are a key part of any safety scheme. We use specialised equipment which uses sensor technology to detect a change in the air in the vicinity of appliances. The sniffer sensor will then detect the level of gases present and send a message to the control unit. In emergency circumstances, the control unit raises an audio alarm to alert the personnel and sends a signal to the solenoid valves which are fitted into the gas lines, to shut down automatically. Our team of well-trained professionals supervise and oversee the entire procedure. Rely on our expertise, as we have delivered the most reliable and efficient gas leakage service for the past three decades. Vital safety and performance evaluations are also done by us. The devices come with proper guarantee and warranty to facilitate easy repairs or replacements if necessary. If you want to be absolutely sure that the air remains clean and safe, call us now at 021 551-5748. Or e-mail us on info@capegas.co.za.
