Frequently Asked Questions About UniPro™ Valve Closure Systems

Can the UniPro™ Valve Closure System be used on railcars equipped with quarter-turn ball valves?

Yes, The UniPro™ QT is designed for quarter-turn ball valves. There are various adapters available based on the valve manufacturer.

Is the UniPro™ Valve Closure System only used of railcars containing pressurized gases?

No, the UniPro™ Valve Closure System can be used on railcars for transporting pressurized gases and liquids. The only restriction is the railcar commodities must be transloaded from valves located on the top of the railcar.

Can the UniPro™ Valve Closure System be used on railcars transporting toxic inhalation hazardous materials, such as ethylene oxide?

Yes, there are models of the UniPro™ actuators designed for ethylene oxide. The actuator is constructed using non-sparking components, including the valve drive plate and dome clamp.

Can anhydrous ammonia be transloaded from railcars using the UniPro™ Valve Closure System?

Yes, the UniPro™ LT Valve Closure System is manufactured with an adapter for the five-spoke anhydrous ammonia railcar valve.

Is a model of the UniPro™ Valve Closure System available to remotely open railcar valves?

No. As the name implies the UniPro™ Valve Closure System is a close-only system. It is manufactured to the recommendations of The Chlorine Institute, Inc.

What is required to operate the UniPro™ Valve Closure System?

The UniPro™ Valve Closure System operates using either compressed air or nitrogen. The pressure requirement is 90 psig at the actuator.

If the plant air supply is lost, will the UniPro™ actuator still close the railcar valve?

Yes, if the UniPro™ air receiver is included the reservoir makes the system “fail-safe”.

What events result in the activation of the UniPro™ Valve Closure System?

The events, or alarms, that result in the activation of the UniPro™ Valve Closure System are: loss of pressure, railcar movement, seismic event, signal from leak detection system or activation of the E-stop on the control panel or the remote E-Stop.
