Parker Hannifin Corporation has expanded its Standard LV Series Pneumatic Lockout Valve with new Compact and High Flow versions, extending the application range of the series with additional body and port sizes. The lockouts are installed in pneumatic drop legs or individual pneumatic control lines. In compliance with OSHA Standard 29 CFR Part 1010, the lockout valves are used during the maintenance of pneumatically operated equipment. The Standard LV Series features port sizes ranging from 3/8 inch to 1-1/4 inch and is suitable for most applications. The new Compact version, which features 1/4 inch and 3/8-inch port sizes, is for smaller machines such as packaging and machine tools where space is at a premium, but must still meet OSHA requirements. The High Flow LV Series, which features 1-1/2 inch and 2-inch port sizes, is suitable for higher flow applications such as power generation, pulp and paper. All versions operate in temperatures ranging from 40 degrees F to 175 degrees F (4.4 degrees C to 79.4 degrees C). The Compact version handles inlet pressures of 15 to 145 psi, while both the Standard and the High Flow versions handle inlet pressures of 15 to 300 psi. All versions are inline or surface mountable and come in safety yellow and red for high visibility.
