Temporarily disable actuators during maintenance.
IML valve actuator lock
Disable your actuated valves during maintenance
During maintenance of your actuated valves in energized state, you want to set valves to their fail-safe position. This way, the valves are disabled and work may proceed safely.
A mechanical interface between actuator and valve
IML valve actuator lock interfaces between the actuator and its host valve. It has a blocking mechanism, that prohibits valve movement when the operating key is inserted. The key may be a part of an operating process, whereby the power source is interlocked with the IML actuator lock. This ensures that the power source and the actuator are operated in correct sequence.
IML valve actuator lock is available in two compact mechanical configurations:
- Key-operated system managed from your control room
- Simple stand alone lockout system which satisfies OSHA standards
