Make your manual valve fail-safe

Kinetrol’s spring fail-safe handles allow manual operation of quarter-turn valves with the advantage

The reliable clock-type springs may be set to deliver precise torques and ensure complete seating of valves in open or closed positions. This facility can prevent or limit hazardous incidents and/or spillage when taking process samples or draining batch production or storage systems.

Fully sealed (to IP67 level) housings totally protect the springs from the environment and three models are available with end of stroke torques up to 40 Nm.

ISO female drive units, suitable for direct mounting, and male drive versions are available as well as ATEX category 2 options for use in hazardous areas. Kinetrol also offers a range of fire fail-safe spring assemblies that can be set to operate valves at pre-determined temperatures.
