Shut off valves are designed to safely regulate and control the flow of hazardous fluids, air or external gases running through a process. Shut off valves are applied to block compressed air in an industrial automation process or isolate sub-systems when pneumatic applications are not in use. This type of valve could also be known or referred to as; a lockout valve, cut off valve, a shutdown valve, an emergency shutdown valve, a ball valve, or an exhausting ball valve.
When requesting a shut-off valve for your process, you need to make sure it suits your industry or function. Therefore, a few questions must be answered by selecting the correct valve; What type of shut off valve is needed, what connection, what material and what type of handling.
For instance, shut-off valves for maritime applications will be, in most cases, made out of bronze due to the salty air. If fire prevention is an important aspect, then a valve with a fire safe will be needed.
