Shut-off valve solution for smart meter suppliers
Published: 19 October 2017 - Sarah Mead
Delivering a more compact, cost-effective shut-off valve solution for smart meter suppliers, NSF Controls has produced a shut-off valve that can be engineered to exact requirements and applied across a diverse range of utilities meter applications as well as for other positional locking device uses.
With growing demand for gas meters, the leading UK designer and manufacturer of solenoids, switches, and a specialist provider of customised electro-mechanical assembly services, developed the innovative solution to meet a new requirement for a shut-off valve to regulate the gas usage.
Offering an exceptional sealing pressure, flow rate, compact size and proven track record with over seven million installed, the success of this gas valve project has positioned NSF Controls as an authority within the energy and utilities sector.
UK-manufactured and in compliance with BS EN 1359:2007 and BS EN14236:2007 for resistance to gas vapour, electrical safety and thermal class standards, NSF Controls ensures a 20-year or 10,000 life cycle.
Solenoid and Motorised Versions
There are two successful valves in operation for smart meter applications suitable for installation to either the outlet or inlet port with a customer specific interface.
The MGV Series is a motorised gas shut-off valve whilst the SGV Series is a bi-stable solenoid-operated gas shut-off valve.
Accredited and approved to ISO9001 & 14001, it’s the simplicity of the valve’s design that reduces the number of failure modes, making it an extremely reliable product. Furthermore, the valves undergo 100% testing once assembled ensuring performance to the required specification.
