Pneumatic Lock Out Valves Can Prevent Serious Injury or Death

Pneumatic systems perform tasks that require energy in the form of pressure, which is stored in a compressor tank, accumulators, or pressure lines.  When maintaining, repairing, or replacing components, that portion of the system must be safely depressurized.

Lock_out_valvesTo properly depressurize, a 3-way palm button actuated Versa LOCKOUT Valve is a recognized systematic approach that blocks the inlet port and exhausts the downstream pressure to meet OSHA requirements. The final step to ensure that the system remains safe for the worker(s) is the placement of a padlock on the Versa LOCKOUT Valve in the desired position. This prevents someone from accidentally introducing pressure, which could seriously injure or kill the worker.
