Quick-Sliding Valve

March 29, 2012

The ATEX quick sliding valve uses gas generators to close the valve if a deflagration is detected as provided with most new systems. Additionally, the valve is provided with plant air-operated slow stroke functions to allow the manual opening and closing of the valve for maintenance. This feature provides the operator with an easy check of the valve mechanics since the slow stroke test is more severe than the anger test. This test meets the requirements of NFAP without an anger test that destroys the firing mechanism, defeating the purpose of the test.
