Protecting a food manufacturing plant

12 May 2017

We congratulate our distributor in Chile (Ingimex SpA) with a successful installation of the single key integral multiturn valve lock on a gate valve that protects the firefighting system for a major food manufacturing plant in Santiago, Chile.

Investing time

The skilled Ingimex engineers invested a great deal of time in engineering, applications and installation training to gain knowledge to serve their clients in the best possible way. The result: satisfied customers and safe applications. In this case a safe food manufacturing plant.

Operating video

This video shows an engineer operating the gate valve using our valve interlocks. It can only be operated by using the unique key that fits in the multiturn valve lock. 

Easy to install, easy to operate

Our multiturn valve interlocks fit on all types of handwheel operated valves, such as gate, globe and all gear operated valves. These interlocks are easy to install, even on a valve in a live process. The interlocks are mounted on multi turn valves to interlock the locked open and/or locked closed position of the valve.

Typical applications include changeover valves (gate or globe), pressure relief valves, loading and unloading of pig traps and sampling devices.

Congratulations to the team of engineers making this happen. Resulting in a safe environment for employees, protecting the business.
