Fire-Tested Valves And Actuators Described In Free Jamesbury Brochure

A new full-color brochure from Jamesbury Corp. of Worcester, Mass., describes its broad line of "Fire-Tite" ball and high-performance butterfly valves and its firetested actuators.

The products are well-suited for handling flammable liquids, gases, and other hazardous materials where leakage in the event of a fire would either fuel the fire or present a dangerous environment.

The brochure describes with diagrams the secondary metal-to-metal sealing that takes place if the primary TFE seats are destroyed in a fire. Actuators available with these valves can be either units which in the case of fire immediately return the valve to its spring-driven position (closed or open), or actuators that are shielded and protected to allow continuing operation of the valve through the fire.
