SAFETY SHUT-OFF VALVE | S 50
Design and function
The safety shut-off valve S 50 shuts off the gas flow when the outlet pressure in the regulating sections exceeds or falls below a certain response pressure. To this end, the outlet pressure to be monitored is passed to the SSV controller via a separate measurement line. As a function of the change in pressure, the diaphragm comparator in the controller is raised or lowered. When the outlet pressure in the regulating section falls below the lower switch-off point or exceeds the upper switch-off point, the switch socket connected to the SSV diaphragm will move to the corresponding disengaging position, the balls of the engaging mechanism will release the SSV valve stem, and the closing spring will press the SSV valve disc against the valve seat. The SSV actuator shuts off the gas flow gas-tight. The SSV can only be opened by and engaged in the open position. To do so, outlet pressure at the measuring point must be lowered below the upper response pressure or raised above the lower response pressure by at least the re-engaging differential amount (Δp).
