Safety in the Steel Industry

High Capacity Manual Lockout L-O-X® Valve, Series 15

Following any FRL components, an energy isolation valve is usually the first valve in the line supplying compressed air to equipment. The energy isolation valve should provide a quick means of shutting off the supply of air and exhausting the downstream lines.

Quick Exhaust and High Visibility
The air can be shut off by pushing the L-O-X® handle inward; downstream air is simultaneously exhausted through the L-O-X® exhaust port. It’s yellow body and large red operating handle allow high visibility. The large exhaust port enables rapid release of line pressure and is threaded for the installation of a silencer or a line for remote exhausting. The High-Capacity Manual Lockout L-O-X® valve is offered in either G1-1/2 & G2 ports.

All 15 Series Lockout Valves include an integrated sensing port for pressure verification where a visual pop-up indicator or pressure switch can be installed. The controlling spool of the valve employs seals made of very low-friction material. These seals enable the L-O-X® spool to shift smoothly and easily even after being on standby for a long period of time.

ROSS poppet valves in the Aluminum and Steel Industries

The ROSS poppet valves have proven themselves through their high reliability and performance plus consistent switching times over many decades in this challenging and unforgiving environment in the Aluminum and Steel Industry. Its internal construction has been carefully calculated to produce strong shifting and sealing forces in each direction which results in a design which ensures high speed, repeatability and high shifting forces over the life of the valve.

ROSS poppet valves have positive sealing with no sliding action to prevent damage and wear. They are also self-cleaning and dirt tolerant thanks to the smallest flow-through area across the poppet’s seal and seat which produces a high-enough velocity to blow out all dirt and foreign matter. If you are looking for robust and reliable products for your application, ROSS poppet valves are the products of choice!
