Latching and Manual Reset Solenoid Valves with Brass or Stainless Steel Construction

Posted by Christina Busanic on Nov 25, 2019, 9:15:00 AM

Latching valves are particularly suited to applications where it is desirable or mandatory to manually reset or restart a system.

A typical application could involve the emergency shutdown of automatically monitored process operations. Loss or interruption of the control signal to the valve actuator causes the valve to shift, latch, and shut-down a process step. When the signal is restored the valve remains in the latched position until the operator manually unlatches it and allows the process step to resume. Positive latching in such an application is vitally important since many process operations are sequential and one step must not be started until the one ahead of it has started.

When an Emergency Shutdown is Necessary – How Do You Ensure It Will Happen?

Posted by Rich Cecilione on Nov 6, 2019, 9:57:09 AM

If ever there is a time when a system absolutely cannot fail, it’s your emergency shut down safety system during an event. These systems are critical to minimizing the impact of potentially disastrous situations such as fire, process irregularities, or storms.

The solenoid valve, frequently taken for granted as a commodity, is actually an essential component in the Emergency Shut Down system. How the solenoids function can mean the difference between a successful emergency shut down or failure. Failure can result in loss of life, an environmental catastrophe, and/or significant financial loss for your organization.
