Checking for Price and Availability
Xintex® S-Series fume detectors offer common sense protection against the potential on-board hazards of propane and compressed natural gas (CNG).
With its high heat output and widespread availability, propane has become the fuel of choice for marine cooking and heating. Being flammable and also denser than air, should there be a leak in the system, propane gas can settle in enclosed areas of a boat, presenting an explosion hazard should there be a spark.

Unlike others, the Xintex fume sensor is splash-proof - allowing for mounting it right in the bilge, where propane vapors collect. It has a proprietary coating which is resistant to incidental water splashes, but allows vapors to pass.
While CNG (methane) is less dense than air and doesn't tend to settle, it can still explode if released in high enough concentrations and set off with a spark.

These Xintex fume detectors produce an audible and visible alarm when exposed to propane or CNG vapors. The "A" models also include circuitry to automatically close a solenoid valve - which shuts off the flow of propane or CNG, thus preventing additional leakage. The solenoid fails in the safe (off) mode, in case of electrical system failure.

As a dual-channel detector, the S-2A is suitable for monitoring 2 separate locations, or for placing two sensors in one very large compartment.

Although the MS-2 Sensor used in these systems can also detect gasoline vapors, the components of the S-series Detector Panels are geared toward propane/CNG.
For the specialized fume detection requirements of gasoline powered boats, please refer to the Xintex M-Series Gasoline Detectors; see Related Products, below.
