AL KHAIL COMMUNITY GETS LEAKAGE DETECTORS AFTER 1 YEAR OF EXPLOSION

Al Khail Gate – a residential community – gets gas leakage detectors to prevent explosive incidents to keep the residents safe [Read full story here]. The apartment complex saw a brutal explosion last year in August 2016 that left an elderly woman unconscious and later caused her death in Rashid Hospital. According to investigation of the incident, the police reported that it occurred due to a faulty LPG cylinder pipe leakage. The incident not only caused the death of a woman but gave wounds to her daughter who was present in the apartment during the time of explosion and posed a question for the developers about the safety of the residents.

Dubai Properties – the developers of Al Khail Gate – have been busy in devising a safe system to detect the leakage and prevent such situations from occurrence since the explosion happened. They have started upgrading the LPG cylinders that include a fire alarm technology in conjunction with a leak detection system within the cylinder. The developers are quite confident with respect to this latest upgrade but the question still remains why these blast incidents occur and how an individual prevent them from happening.

WHY LPG CYLINDER BLASTS?

The explosion problem of LPG cylinder has nothing to do with its material as every seller would pay due attention to ensure the quality of manufacturing material. As a Maintenance Company in Dubai, we have found such cases only due to a pipe leakage that is connected to LPG cylinder. A minor crack in gas pipes can lead to a disastrous situation as happened in Al Khail Gate’s incident last year. Once the gas starts to leak, it spreads all over the place and waits for a tiny flame to light up fire everywhere.

Apart from gas pipes, the valves could also be a reason for the occurrence of cylinder explosion. Gas pipes and valves are bound to go out of order with the passage of time and require timely maintenance. So it is your duty to take care of their maintenance to ensure the safety of your loved ones and make sure that there are no leakages that could lead to such catastrophic situation.

HOW TO PREVENT EXPLOSIONS?

As a maintenance company in Dubai, we never support the idea of handling things on your own when you have such a serious situation. Calling a plumber is the right option instead of handling things on your own. However, there are certain steps that you should follow immediately as mentioned below:

  • LPG gas is bound to spread once it finds a leakage either in valve or in pipe so the first thing to do is turn off the main connection.
  • Make sure there are no flammable elements within the affected area where you could smell the gas within your apartment.
  • Open windows or any possible passage to reduce the pressure of gas once you smell its existence within the premise.
  • Call in a plumber or get help of a maintenance company in Dubai to fix the issue in accurate manner instead of relying on your fixing skills.

  • When checking the cleanliness of your air ducts, you should start from the registers or entrance/exit points of the air. See if the air flow is uninterrupted or something is blocking the usual flow from each end. If it’s slow, this simply means that small dirt particles have done their work by forming little rocks at entrance/exit points that you need to remove to gain back desired air flow.
  • When examining the cleaning condition of your air ducts, never skip to check them from the inside.

So check and see if your air ducts need a proper cleaning activity by calling in air duct cleaning services in Dubai.

This could be due to a short circuit within the AC system that is causing trouble in air flow and if this is the case with your AC, you need to fix the electricity flow that is impacting on sound working of the air ducts.
  • Air ducts play an important role in keeping your place cool but when they go out of order, you have to suffer from the hot temperature. The air duct issue could be directly related with the outdoor unit of your AC that has been blocked by some physical substance and is not working properly.
