Fire Valves

 

  • Suitable for installation in either horizontal or vertical pipe work
  • Designed to provide a 100% shut off when used as a fuel isolating valve
  • May also be used as a fuel ‘dump’ valve, whereby the valve will open on actuation
  • Standard Free Fall Valve assembly comprises of a valve, lever and weight, together with a fitting kit
  • Standard valves are manufactured in cast iron to ASTM A126 Gr B
  • Suitable for use with fuel oils and gases at pressures up to 14 bar
  • Valves with screwed connections have BSP parallel threads, whilst flanged valves are available with either BS 4504 PN 16 flange drillings or to ANSI 125
  • Available with carbon or stainless steel body and plug materials
  • Standard Fire Valves are supplied with a ‘Lubricating Compound’ which is a general purpose sealant, suitable for hydrocarbons, other Lubricating Compounds are available
  • May be actuated mechanically or electrically
  • Supplied with a Fire Valve Kit, available in sizes, Small (15 to 50mm NB valves), Medium (65 to 100mm NB valves) and Large (125mm to 200mm NB valves)
  • Kits contain Pulley Wheels, Stainless Steel Cable, Fusible Links, Warning Signs, Cable Connectors and Tension Springs, any of which may be purchased as individual products
  • Electrically actuated Fire Valve systems utilize a standard valve, level and weight and use an electrical Release System allowing actuation by making or breaking electrical circuit.
  • The installation of a valve mounted Mercury Switch, Electro Mechanical Release or Wall Mounted Changeover Switch may provide remote signaling of the Fire Valve status, or allow direct switching of electrical equipment where applicable
