How the Inner-Tite Emergency

Shut-off Valve Works

 

• The Fuse Plug is threaded into the cast iron valve cap and attached to a Spring connected to the Shut-off Cover, holding the cover in the open position.

 

• In the event of a fire, the exposed heat collecting fins on the Fuse Plug, transmit the elevated temperature to the fusible metal alloy which melts at
a temperature of approximately 165 Degrees Fahrenheit. When the fusible alloy melts, it releases the Shut-off Cover allowing the valve to close and stop the flow of gas.

 

• Horizontal installation is reccomended. Use care when installing vertically. Gas flow must be in the downward direction. Do not install inverted.
