27.04.2017 - Commitment is rewarded

For several years, the company GOK has adhered to the philosophy of actively supporting its employees by providing them with further training. “We are well aware of our employees’ potential and of the future challenges surrounding the need for qualified technical specialists and managers,” reports Gerald Unger, Managing Director of the company GOK. “In terms of the forecast shortage of technical specialists, we view the investments that we make in the training of our employees as being a key component in securing the future of our company.”

The commitment of the company and the willingness of the employees to take part in after-work training has recently been rewarded. At a ceremony that took place on 24 March 2017 in Schweinfurt, the best graduates of the 2016 German Chamber of Commerce (IHK) further training examinations were honoured for their efforts.

Ms Valentina Dennerlein was awarded the Master Prize Certificate for her excellent efforts during her qualification as an Industry Economist.

24.03.2017 - Prepare your gas-powered barbecue for the season

When the days begin to get sunnier and the nights get warmer,
people bring out their barbecues again. In recent years there has
been a genuine boom in barbecues, and for many people they
are much more than just a hobby or a means of preparing food.
In addition to classic charcoal barbecues, gas-powered
barbecues are now firmly established as an alternative.

Cooking with LPG is fast, environmentally-friendly and clean,
and the cooked food tastes excellent. In addition, cooking with
an LPG barbecue is also very safe - as long as certain rules are
followed. When using a gas-powered barbecue for the first time
after it has spent the winter in the garage or the cellar, it is
particularly important to check all of its components before
cooking.

Unfortunately, many people simply do a quick check to make
sure it is working. That is not enough, however. It is also
important to check all of the components "under the gas-
powered barbecue" which are situated between the gas
cylinder and the gas burner - such as the pressure regulator,
the hose line and the excess flow device. We have compiled
a special article in our GOK-Blog detailing everything you
should do before you begin cooking with your barbecue again.


ISH

10.03.2017 - GOK presents Innovations at World Leading Trade Fair

On the occasion of ISH in Frankfurt GOK first time presents the
revised design of the level indicators for the SmartBox® Series.
With these new designed housings GOK fits to the design of the
requirements of the user. The tank management systems are
used to monitor filling levels of media like heating oil, diesel,
AdBlue® or other liquids in unpressurised tanks.

A new development in the LPG sector is the double-stage tank
regulator with remote signalling for the over-pressure shut off
safety device OPSO (SAV). If the safety equipment of the
pressure regulator is activated, a signal is sent to the remote
maintenance centre (control room) via reed contact. In this way,
the operator is immediately able to ensure that the system has
been deactivated and to initiate the appropriate measures.

For oil firing installations, GOK will be presenting the VTK-3D
tank withdrawal armature, which is used for the withdrawal of
fuels from tanks which are installed under and above-ground.
Due to the tank port which can be turned by 360 degrees,
it simplifies both the assembly and operation.


20.01.2017 - GOK can help in case of internal or external icing of pressure regulators

Europe in January 2017:

This winter brings us icy cold and temperatures far below zero.

This is really challenging for the products in LPG installations -
particularly for the pressure regulator: being affected by icing,
it will cause a standstill of the complete installation which is
fatal especially if the heat supply depends on the regulator.

We will show in our GOK blog how to prevent regulators from
icing and that not only temperatures far below zero might
"put the regulator on ice".
