We have a sustainability programme with the primary objective of reducing our carbon emissions by 25% by 2020. And, when it comes to carbon emissions, it’s good to know that with Calor, your business is using one of the cleanest burning, most environmentally sustainable fuels available, off the natural gas grid. In addition, we can offer you practical solutions to help you save energy in your business, such as an energy survey on your premises which can be carried out on request by your Calor Sales Representative. This will provide you with an immediate report on the energy efficiency of your business and outline tailored recommendations to assist you in making improvements.

SAFETY & EMERGENCY

.................................................................................................................. Bulk Tank Customers Your installation is equipped with a two-stage pressure reduction system. The first stage is normally mounted directly on the tank, while the second stage can either be on the tank, or it can be located at the entry to the building. This makes sure that gas is supplied into your business premises at constant pressure. If you leave your premises unattended for any length of time, it is sensible to turn off all your gas appliances and the Emergency Control Valve. (See diagram below.)

How to read your Rotogage For business customers who have a tank that has a greater capacity than two tonnes, you may have a rotogage. To read the rotogage, you must follow these steps:

How to read your contents/float gauge Your contents or float gauge is a dial located at X or Y on the diagram above, depending on the size of your tank. There is usually a plastic white cover over the gauge which you will need to remove in order to read it. The dial will show how much gas is in your tank. If you are not on telemetry/automatic top-up, when your tank falls below 30%, please contact a member of our Customer Support Team to place an order for a delivery of gas. You’ll find our contact details at the back of this booklet.

1. Turn rotogage to 100% mark. 2. Open vent valve at end of rotogage stem by turning it anticlockwise. 3. Slowly turn rotogage lever anticlockwise. (Keep turning until a liquid gas escapes as a white coloured spray - read % contents at this stage.) 4. Turn rotogage back towards 100% mark until liquid spray stops. 5. Repeat step 3 turning the rotogage lever clockwise this time. Always return rotogage to 100% mark when finished and be sure to close the vent valve by turning it clockwise. When operating with live gas, personal protective equipment must be worn i.e. protective goggles and gloves.

Everything after the tank valve is your property, unless otherwise agreed with Calor, including the pressure regulators, pipework and valves. (These must be set at the correct pressure for your installation.)

Calor propane has a special additive to give it a distinctive smell - and so help with the detection of leaks.

.................................................................................................................

The regulators are selected and set when they are installed and should give many years of trouble-free service. Regulators must be installed only by a suitably qualified gas installer.

SAFe USe OF GAS APPLiAnceS It is important that you make sure that all your appliances have been installed correctly.

................................................................................................................. Gas appliances should be serviced annually and inspected by a suitably qualified gas installer. If there is anything you are concerned about, please contact your installer for assistance. (Please refer to our website for a full list of installers in your area.) You may also contact your Calor retailer or supplier for advice about your appliances. Calor also recommends the use of carbon monoxide detectors for your business premises. More information about carbon monoxide detectors is available on our website. (Contact details provided at the back of the booklet.)

.................................................................................................................

FLUeS A gas-fired boiler in your premises will be fitted with a flue, which is usually a pipe coming from the top of the boiler, or a rectangular section leading to an outside wall, or out through a chimney.

.................................................................................................................

The flue is there to remove the carbon dioxide and water vapour produced by the burning of gas. The flue should be inspected fully when the appliance is serviced, to check its integrity and proper termination. Calor recommends that all gas boilers and flues should be serviced annually and inspected by a suitably qualified gas installer.

venTiLATiOn When using gas appliances, it is essential to have an adequate supply of fresh air.

........................................................................................................... Ventilators may also be required, always check the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions for guidance. Please ensure that any area where gas appliances are used has a ventilator or grille which is not blocked. If an area becomes stuffy, open a door or a window immediately. All ventilation in your premises should be fitted in accordance with the ventilation safety standards and the manufacturer’s instructions, as some appliances are room sealed or balanced fl ued and may require purpose provided ventilators. If in doubt, or if you would like further information, please seek advice (contact details provided at the back of the booklet).
