Emergency toxic gas shut-off system is fire code approved
Eclipse Actuators quickly close toxic gas valves on 150-pound and ton cylinders in less than one second when activated by remote sensors. This actuator system will then provide a closed contact relay signal to assure that the valve is now closed and torqued. The operator can then visit the site to correct the condition, check the gas connections, and manually reopen the valve. The Eclipse is a battery-operated system and allows an operator or remote gas sensor to shutoff leaking toxic gas without requiring the operator to enter the hazardous atmosphere. The chlorine valve can be opened or closed manually with the actuator installed and ready to operate. The latest Fire Codes recognize and approve the “automatic-closing fail-safe shutoff valve” system in lieu of scrubber treatment systems. This system meets the recommended emergency torque requirement published by the Chlorine Institute for emergency closing of 150-pound cylinder or ton container valves.
