BlastOff™ – Leak Detection System
The patent-pending BlastOffTM – Leak Detection System is provided exclusively with South-Tek Systems’ Nitrogen Generation Systems. Engineered to detect leaks within the external environment of the applied application, this audible run-time alarm will alert when the Nitrogen generation system runs excessively to compensate for these leaks. This exclusive feature is only available on systems engineered by South-Tek Systems.
Fire Protection/N2-Blast® Applications
Unless the leak rate is catastrophic, the supervisory low pressure alarm on the FPS will not activate. Minor leaks cause the air compressor and N2-Blast® to run excessively in order to maintain supervisory pressure. This unnecessary additional run-time decreases the lifespan of the equipment. The BlastOffTM – Leak Detection System is designed to detect significant leaks before they compromise the FPS and the Nitrogen generation system. It has an internal audible alarm and dry contact for wiring into the Building Monitoring System (BMS) and will also alarm if the air compressor or the N2-Blast® is not working properly.
Restaurant and Bar/BeerBlast® Applications
The BlastOffTM – Leak Detection System is designed to detect line leaks within the downstream gas lines from the BeerBlast® to the kegs. Line leaks could be due to a keg not being tapped correctly, a beer gas line failing, regulator malfunction, etc. These leaks are potential safety hazards since harmful and deadly gases can quickly accumulate in the keg cooler. These gases are odorless and unknowingly can lead to suffocation. Not only can leaks be a tremendous liability but they also deplete the gas powering your draft beer system and lead to costly gas run-outs which result in revenue loss for your restaurant/pub. With the BlastOffTM warning mechanism, it eliminates any downtime by notification of a leak when it occurs.
Once a leak has been detected, the BlastOffTM is set to initiate a buzzer, activate a warning light, and shut off the BeerBlast®. The instructions on the front of the BeerBlast® recommend calling our 24/7 customer support number or contacting your local gas company to locate the leak. There will be no downtime since all one has to do is simply turn off the power switch and turn it back on. The BeerBlast® will be up and running once again until the leak in your draft beer system can be properly diagnosed. Save money, time, aggravation, decrease your liability, and also protect your BeerBlast® from excessive run time due to either a catastrophic or pinhole leak downstream!
