Transcript

  • 1. Fire Safe Fusible Link Valves for Automatic Shut-Off API 607 Ball Valves and Butterfly Valves 2” -24” Link temperatures from 135°F to 440°F FM Approval on all fusible link assemblies
  • 2. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves FUSIBLE LINK ASSEMBLIESAUTOMATED BALL VALVES FIRE SAFE BALL VALVES WITH NPT ENDS FIRE SAFE BALL VALVES WITH FLANGED ENDS
  • 3. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Overview of Fusible Link Assemblies• Automatic shutoff in case of fire or exposureto elevated heat conditions• Used in process lines to contain the media ina safe location or in fire suppression systems• Used with API 607 ball and butterfly valves (1/4” through 24” sizes)• For pipelines conveying flammable media ineither liquid or gas form• Valve can be operated even while springpack is armed• Remote shut-off options• Torque output options to 21,000 inch pounds
  • 4. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Applications and Industries Served • Tank Farms • Biodiesel, Ethanol and Alternative Fuels • Petrochemical • Oil and Gas Pipelines • Boiler Systems • Paint and Toxic Chemicals • Hospitals/Generator Systems • To meet insurance, FM or OSHA requirements • Release of fire retardants (Fail OPEN) • ANY plant with flammable liquids or gasses
  • 5. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Main Features 1. Automatic shut-off in case of fire 2. API 607 fire safe design/approval on all valves 3. Full FM approval 4. Ball valves from ¼” through 4” with NPT, socket weld or 150# flanged ends 5. Butterfly valves from 2” through 24” in lug or wafer style connections 6. Valve can be operated even while spring pack is armed 7. Heavy duty all stainless steel arming plate 8. Patented clock spring design 9. Industrial-style ball and butterfly valves in carbon steel or stainless steel with multiple seat options
  • 6. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves How fire safe fusible link valves work Fusible link 1. The spring pack is armed in the full CCWspring pack position. Note: the valve can still be opened and closed manually even while the spring pack is armed. 2. The fusible link holds the spring pack in the designated position (for fail open or fail close). 3. When the soldered fusible link breaks, spring pack will rotate the drive coupler and tripper arm clockwise no matter what position the handle is in. Tripper 4. Most applications are fail closed; once the arm valve is in the closed position, it will cut off the flow of flammable media to the pipeline. SS arming plate
  • 7. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves What makes a valve “fire safe”? Integral tongue & 1. Graphoil body seals prevent any leakage groove past the ball or disc; graphoil stem packing prevents leakage through the top of the valve 2. Tongue and groove body seal design 3. Blow-out proof stem 4. Seats can be TFE, RTFE, PEEK, Nova or Delrin 5. Meets API (American Petroleum Institute)Graphoil seal 607 standards for withstanding extended high temperature conditions without leakage at full pressure rating 6. Metal-to-metal contact reduces threat of leakage
  • 8. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Our design versus others you might encounter1. True “industrial style” full port ball valve, not a check valve2. Higher pressure ratings3. Can be manually operated4. Easy to re-set in the field5. Simple maintenance and repair of valves in the field6. No need to remove ball valves from the pipeline for repair/maintenance7. Can be retrofit to customer- owned or plant-specified valves
  • 9. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Options1. Valve monitoring2. Remote shut off3. On-site installation with our technicians4. Retrofit to customer-owned valves Proximity sensors/limit switch options for open and closed positions Remote shut-off of fusible link from 24VDC power source

  • 12. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves FUSIBLE LINK ASSEMBLIES FOR FIRE PROTECTION Also available for retrofit to any API607 ball or butterfly valve Here are a few of the valve manufacturers we have made fusible link assemblies for: ABZ • BRAY • DEZURIK • FNW • FLO-TITE • FLOW-TEK • HABONIM • JAMESBURY • MARWIN • SHARPE VALVE • SVF FLOW CONTROLS • • TYCO FLOW CONTROLS
  • 13. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves FUSIBLE LINK ASSEMBLIES FOR FIRE PROTECTIONHere are a just a few of the END USERS who use our product: • Abbott Pharmaceutical • Gillette • Archer Daniels Midland • Harley-Davidson • Briggs & Stratton • Honda • BP Products • La Farge • Cardinal Health • Marathon-Ashland • Cargill • Nissan North America • Consumer Energy • Procter & Gamble • Elgin Sweepers • Rustoleum • Georgia Pacific • Toyota
  • 14. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves SAMPLE APPLICATION #1: Marathon-Ashland • Location: Canton, OH • Application: fusible link assemblies designed to fail close at a diesel truck re- fueling station • Marathon had been using a competitor’s non-industrial style fusible link on a 3” pipeline and they were not holding up in the application because of constant cycling • Our assemblies have been in line for over 5 years without failure or maintenance
  • 15. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves SAMPLE APPLICATION #2: SKF USA • Location: Armada, MI • Application: fusible link assemblies designed to fail close on EDM (Electrical Discharge) machines that are used to remove material and reshape precision steel parts to obtain desired finish and accuracy • High flash points of electrodes/liquid in process recently resulted in a fire at another one of SKF’s locations. FM inspectors now require BI-TORQ fusible link valves on each port off of their dielectric tanks • Four assemblies were installed last month and approved by FM and OSHA inspectors
  • 16. Specialty Safety Products: Fire Safe Valves Optional Fusible Plug• A cost-effective option when plant air isavailable• Used with a spring return pneumaticactuator• Functions open-closed as a standardpneumatically actuated valve.• Plug allows air to vent toatmosphere, causing springs to turnactuator CW to close
