GOK Marine Quality
What makes a GOK Marine pressure regulator so safe?
German manufacturing has always been associated with high standards. You only need to look at the car industry to know that, with car giants Audi and Mercedes Benz churning out their latest top cars. But what about the quality of German manufactured GOK marine regulators? What makes them so safe?

A regulator on a marine vessel undergoes a lot of stress and is exposed to a lot of harsh conditions: Salty air and water, a variety of extreme temperatures and strong movements due to heavy swells. Therefore a marine regulator needs to have specialist requirements so it can withstand these challenges and most importantly not fail.
They must be made from rust proof materials
Have undergone a variety of tests
Be certified according to the applicable standards
Researching GOK marine equipment
Each regulator is fitted with either a pressure relief valve (PRV) or two stage safety equipment (S2SR). Both PRV and S2SR provide protection against dangerous over-pressure between the regulator and consumer equipment, such as a gas cooker or a heater.
The marine regulators are all coated in a special finish which protects them against the harsh environments and works against corrosion. GOK test their regulators with a salt spray to check for corrosion.
HOW THE TEST WORKS:
This test consists of a salty solution being sprayed directly onto the pressure regulator over a period of at least 16 hours. The test is only considered to have been successfully passed if the maximum permitted degree of corrosion has not been exceeded.
Made in Germany
GOK produce most parts themselves, guaranteeing material purity and maximum precision for their regulators. It is through these measures that are undertaken by GOK that they can produce such high quality marine regulators which are used across the continent and now with marine engineers and boat manufacturers throughout the UK.
