Emergency Shut-off Valves – Aile
AILE QDYH Series Emergency Shut-off Valves are installed on fuel supply lines beneath at grade level to minimize hazards associated with collision or fire at the dispenser. If the dispenser is pulled over or dislodged by collision, the top of the valve breaks off the flow of fuel. Single-poppet models shut off supply flow, while double-poppet models shut off supply as well as prevent release of fuel from the dispenser’s internal piping. The base of the Emergency Valve is securely anchored to the concrete dispenser island through a stabilizer bar system within a U-Bolt Assembly. Valve inlet (bottom) connection are female pipe threads and outlet (top) connections are available with female threads, male threads, or a union fitting. Other options include suction system models with a normally closed secondary poppet which maintain prime, and models with external threads on inlet body which connect to secondary containment system.
