Our E-Pro® Electric Valve Closure System is designed for both cylinders and containers. This patented system prevents releases of pressurized hazardous chemicals at the source. It is designed to stand alone as a complete system or to integrate and interface with existing components. The system includes the actuator, mounting bracket, control panel, uninterruptible power supply, remote E-stop, wrench, and storage bracket. It is engineered, designed, and field-tested to ensure reliable performance while reducing installation time, maintenance, and material cost.
U.S. Patent 7,793,916
The actuator is constructed of aircraft-quality aluminum and high-grade carbon and stainless steel for maximum service life. Its housing is sealed to prevent intrusion from wind and water in outdoor applications. A two-step polyurethane coating provides corrosion protection.
You may have an application requiring modified or unique hardware. In these cases, we offer an Application Evaluation Service.
Some valve closures systems are simply built. Ours is engineered.
Every component of the E-Pro® Electric Valve Closure System is engineered to be more versatile, efficient, and reliable than alternative units on the market. The system includes the following:
The Control Panel automatically activates the actuator in an emergency. The system can also be manually activated by depressing the emergency stop button on the panel. The panels are listed by Underwriters Laboratory to UL 508A for Enclosed Industrial Control Panels and the equivalent cUL mark in Canada. In applications where CSA listed control panels are required, please contact us. All E-Pro® Control Panels require junction boxes to prevent voltage drop if the distance between the furthest actuator and control panel is greater than 20 feet.
The Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) maintains power to the control panel and the solenoid valve within the Air Control Unit.
The Remote Emergency Stop Pushbutton Panel (E-Stop Panel) is installed wherever convenient for operators to reach in an emergency. The operators can use the E-Stop Panel to remotely shut the railcar valves without approaching the railcar. It is available for non-explosive and explosive environments.
The wrench is specifically designed to be used on the valve bracket.
Our E-Pro® Electric Valve Closure System is supported by our experienced technicians who can provide operator training, product inspection, recertification of actuator torque, or perform scheduled preventive maintenance. Additional charges may apply for these services.
