Original Press Release:
Parker Introduces EZ Series Lockout Valves with Soft-Start Functions
The Pneumatic Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation has introduced the EZ Series Lockout Valves with an integrated Soft-Start function. This new series of valves is used to prevent accidental actuation during the servicing of air-operated equipment, with the Soft-Start function allowing a gradual system re-pressurization after maintenance has been completed. The valves are offered in a full range of pipe sizes from 3/8" to 1-1/4" in both BSPP and NPT threads, with Cv's from 3.7 to 13.7, and are available with 3/4" and 1-1/4" exhaust ports.
EZ Series Lockout Valves feature a rugged cast aluminum alloy body designed for either inline or surface mounting, a detented spool, and a threaded exhaust port for installation of a silencer or line for remote exhausting. The valves are designed for use in systems to comply with OSHA Standard 29 CFR Part 1910. Operation consists of depressing the red handle to block pressure and relieve all downstream air pressure. A padlock is then installed through the locking hasp. Once the padlock is removed, the red handle is pulled out to allow gradual system re-pressurization.
