Safety shut-off valves for steam prevent dangerous operating conditions

Vaporous media harbor a high potential for danger. In closed systems, they place special demands on all components and their functionality due to high pressures, hot temperatures and aggressive properties. So in the event of a malfunction, absolutely reliable operation is crucial for the safety of your workforce and your plant. Safety quick-acting shut-off valves from Albrecht-Automatik are designed for these extreme conditions and reliably protect you from dangerous operating conditions.

How shut-off valves for steam work

Instantaneous trip time is essential for maximum safety of your plant. We have designed our quick-closing shut-off valves for steam to close by spring force in less than one second in the event of an auxiliary power failure, and within five seconds in the control function.

Thanks to Fire-Safe approval, they also shut off quickly and reliably in the event of fire.

Shut-off valves from Albrecht-Automatik are suitable for all vaporous media

Vapors are generated in many different processes in industry. Whether as an operating material, main product, by-product or waste product – the properties of vapors are very differentiated. Escaping vapors usually pose an immediate danger to people, the environment and the plant. Industrially used gases and their vapors can be heavier or lighter than air.

Gases and their vapors that are lighter than air pose a hazard primarily at the point of origin and in enclosed spaces. These include:

  • Hydrogen
  • Helium
  • Methane
  • Ammonia
  • Acetylene
  • Hydrogen cyanide
  • Nitrogen
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Ethylene

Gases and their vapors that are heavier than air collect at ground level similar to liquid, are particularly hazardous at low elevations, and have low volatility. These include:

  • Ethane
  • Formaldehyde
  • Methanol
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Hydrogen chloride
  • Ethylene oxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Propane
  • Ethanol
  • Butadiene
  • Butane
  • Acetone
  • Acrolein
  • Vinyl chloride
  • Chlorine
  • Pentane
  • Hydrocarbon disulfide
  • Benzene

In the industrial environment, other vapors are also frequently generated during processes that must be discharged in a safe and controlled manner. These mainly include:

  • Oil vapors
  • Coolant vapors
  • Exhaust fumes
