Stock in Canada and United States Warehouses to Meet New Industry Regulations
Are your diesel engines, workers and property protected by a Positive Air Shutoff System?
On January 1, 2018 Some Energy companies in the United States and Canada changed their Safety Policy to require all diesel engines on their properties must be equipped with Testable RPM controlled Positive Air Shutoff Valves.
A Positive Air Shutoff System is a necessity for anyone with a diesel engine that may come in contact with natural gas, propane, or any other flammable gasses. A small leak of flammable gas is likely to cause a diesel engine to “run away”, causing catastrophic damage to the engine, and surrounding area as it explodes.
A diesel engine will utilize any fuel available, and flammable gas in the air is more than enough to keep a diesel engine running, even when the key is removed. Once a diesel engine gets a supply of flammable gas in the air, it will run indefinitely or to the point of catastrophic failure. The only way to prevent and stop this is to shut off the air supply to the engine, starving it of gaseous fuel.
This Deepwater Horizon clip shows what can happen to a diesel engine when airborne Hydrocarbons are being sucked into the air intake system. It can cause total destruction of the engine, the surrounding personnel and infrastructure.
The Shocker PASS is capable of automatically sensing high-revving “run away” situations, and will automatically shut the valve, closing the air supply to the engine to protect the engine itself, as well as property and personnel in the area.
On July 12, 2017, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) developed two regulatory amendments: B621 and B622. Transport Canada stipulates that every fuel hauler (Class 2 & 3) in operation must be fitted with an automatically activated-manual reset positive shutoff system by January 12, 2018. Due to the new regulations, there has been a massive influx of demand for the Positive Air Shutoff Systems (PASS).
