SSV – SAFETY SHUTDOWN UNIT
Fahlke’s safety shutdown units (SSV) are used worldwide by operators in the gas industry for the independent by monitoring and protection of pressure ratings in pipeline systems. This innovative system is pioneering in terms of design, fields of application and technology.
Fahlke’s safety shutdown units provide perfect protection from an impermissible increase in pressure. This is ensured by the safety shutdown unit (SSV) certified according to DIN EN 14382 and consisting of a solid drilled ball valve with a spring-closing actuator and control unit with pressure monitoring.
The advantages: The system is piggable. This eliminates the need for an expensive bypass. The two independent seals of the SSV ball valve ensure secure closure of the pipeline without leakage. Due to the double sealing system, according to the directive, only one SSV is necessary. The integrated high-precision AG 1 pressure limit valves for monitoring the preset switch-off pressure make it possible to maximize the utilization of your line.
Fahlke provides a ready, tested valve unit with type examination certificate, which in comparison to conventional systems significantly reduces construction and operating costs.
