Article Title: Design and Development of Kitchen Gas Leakage Detection and Automatic Gas Shut off System
by Apeh S.T, Erameh K.B and Iruansi U.

Gas leakages resulting into fatal inferno has become a serious problem in household and other areas where household gas is handled and used. Gas leakage leads to various accidents resulting in financial loss as well as human injuries and/or loss. The work aims at designing a system that detects gas leakage and alerts the subscriber through alarm and status display besides turning off the gas supply valve as a primary safety measure. The shutting off of the supply valve stops further gas flow to the cooker to prevent fire outbreak arising from attempt at igniting of the cooker. The system more like a first Aid, automatically uses a normally closed solenoid valve for the shutting off of the gas valve before calling for help via visual display and audible alarm to those within the environment. The system is an intelligent system, as it does not create a noise nuisance by continuously sounding alarm but the alarm stops beeping once the concentration of the gas in the atmosphere after leakage goes below the set point and opens the valve again for normal operations. This work will minimize injuries/losses occasioned by explosions due to gas leakages and improve safety of life and property while using domestic cooking gas.
