Shut Off Valves
NI Series Hazardous Duty Valves
Industrial Grade Hazardous Duty Electro-Mechanical Safety Shut-off Valve that stops the flow of gases to the combustion chamber in under a second. Offered in a wide range of body connections, construction materials, with global certifications.
These electrically actuated valves shut off gas or oil lines in less than one second. Normally open versions of these shut off valves are available for vent or process purge lines with MAXON's long-lasting metal-to-metal seating. A variety of optional body materials and body connections provide reliable operation of the gas valve even for highly corrosive fuels and for oxygen. Application flexibility is provided with 3/4" through 6" diameter line sizes, Cv flow factors up to 765, and line pressures up to 125 PSIG (8.6 bar).
