FM Approved ValvesFM Fire-Safe Thermal & Electro-Thermal Shutoff Valve Fusible Link Assemblies
Assured Automation's FM Fire-Safe Thermal and Electro-Thermal ball valve and butterfly valve assemblies are designed to shut off automatically and control hazardous conditions. The ball valve and butterfly valve assemblies are Factory Mutual (FM) approved per use in flammable liquid application per FM class 7440. The heat actuated, FM & U.L. listed thermal links automatically shut off or open the valve at predetermined temperatures. A unique, removable handle allows the valve to be manually operated at any time without affecting the fusible links.

Standards

  • National Fire Protection Association NFPA 58, (1979 Edition)
    2343. Emergency shutoff valves shall be approved and incorporate all of the following means of closing (see 3168 and 3223):
    1. Automatic shutoff through thermal (fire) actuation. When fusible elements are used they shall have a melting point not exceeding 250°F.
    2. Manual shutoff from a remote location.
    3. Manual shutoff at the installed location.
    NOTE: The only proposed change is in section 3168 where the compliance date of December 31, 1978 is moved to December 31, 1980.
     
  • OSHA 29 CFR 1910.106(b)(4)(iv)(c) Flammable Liquids
    "Flammable liquid tanks located inside of buildings, except in one-story buildings designed and protected for flammable liquid storage, shall be provided with an automatic-closing heat-actuated valve on each withdrawal connection below the liquid level, except for connections used for emergency disposal, to prevent continued flow in the event of fire in the vicinity of the tank. This function may be incorporated in the valve required in (b) of this subdivision, and if a separate valve, shall be located adjacent to the valve required in (b) of this subdivision."
     
  • Factory Mutual Class Number 7440, May, 1981
    Approval Standard for Firesafe Valves. A firesafe valve is one specifically designed for flammable liquid service and which can withstand a direct fire exposure of 15 minutes without excessive internal or external damage.
     
  • ANSI/API 607
    Fire Test for Soft-Seated Quarter Turn Valves. The standard covers the requirements for testing and evaluating the performance of straightway, soft-seated quarter-turn valves when the valves are exposed to certain fire conditions defined in this standard. The procedures described in this standard apply to all classes and sizes of such valves that are made of materials listed in ASME B16.34.
     
  • API 553, Paragraph 7.2.1
    Emergency Block Valves are used to control a hazardous incident. These are valves for emergency isolation and are designed to stop the uncontrolled release of flammable or toxic materials.
     
  • AIChE Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) Guidelines for Safe Storage and Handling of Reactive Materials, pages 163,181, 1995

Typical Applications
