Now-a-days, big problem in our houses are to refill the cylinder in time. This problem can be overcome by our machine. In fact, most of the time people handover old cylinder to the delivery men without knowing the exact quantity of the gas left in it.

A Smart Gas cylinder machine is used to sort out all your problems associated with gas cylinder. It will inform you through buzzer and SMS, gas leakage if any in the cylinder. SMS can be sent to the user as well as gas refilling agency when the gas level reaches below the threshold limit of gas around 2 kg so that the user can replace the old cylinder with new in time. If gas leakage is detected it will send SMS and immediately turn off the power supply which is most dangers for producing the spark leads to gas cylinder blast and also it is indicated by buzzer to prevent fire accident. As the lifting of gas cylinder is difficult, our machine has been provided with a wheel for easy transportation.

One machine for all your gas cylinder problems
Even at 21 century, now no substantiated device is available in the market
to sort out the gas leakage problem in the cylinder. Nowadays, gas leakage
fire accidents and its death are quite normal in our life.
“a smart gas cylinder machine” designed by Prof. Moorhy Selvakumaran to address all the problems associated with the gas cylinder usage. This machine has four functional parts namely rotating wheels for easy lifting, weighting machine to display available gas weight & send SMS to book for gas refilling if below 2 kg gas weight, gas leakage sensor to inform customer through buzzer and SMS about the gas leakage and finally if any gas leakage, machine has to shut down power supply through zigbee technology immediately to avoid the gas cylinder blast.
Double sealed packaging of the electronic circuit in the body of the machine
will ensure 100% safety to the customer and not give up any electrical sparks to the unwanted incidents while in usage.
Prof. Moorthy Selvakumaran has replied about his new product that we have applied for getting Intellectual Property Rights i.e. patent for this new product.
Professor further explained that this kind of activities among the final year Engineering students will change the mind set as an employer instead of looking for a job as an employee. As per our former president Dr ABJ Abdul Kalam vision 2020, our students are to be job generators but not job seekers.
Sri Selvakumaran Industries, Erode has agreed to manufacture the same product named as “Gas machine” with the cost of Rs.4000/- for the poor people in our country. If government will subsidy, the product cost will come down to Rs.2000/- for the benefit of poor families.
We are discussing with oil companies like Indane and Bharat to validate our new product and recommend the central agencies to offer amount of subside for making product with lesser price to sellout to the many people.

Principal Message: faculty members have to motivate the students to do such a new innovation at the student’s level itself. Indian financial side has to improve through export of such an innovative product to the other countries.
