Magne-Flo Safety Valves

Introducing Magne-Flo's automatic cut-off and reset valve for natural gas, in the event of a break in the supply.

The Magne-Flo valves are made up of five parts;-

  1. A ferrite magnet, housed in a brass fitting.
  2. The only moving part - a stainless steel operating plate.
  3. Magnet retainer, plastic body.
  4. Plastic seat body.
  5. Housed in 28mm brass fitting, manufactured to strict quality control guidelines. Reducers are used with 22mm pipes.

Magne-Flo Safety Valves

All valves are fitted with the Magne-Flo patented unique automatic shut off and reset mechanisms.

Fitting


The 28mm valve should be fitted on the downstream/domestic side of the meter. Fitting is simple. Must be fitted by a registered GasSafe engineer.

 

 

Daily Post _ Gas explosions

The valves can be fitted in any position and are not affected by orientation. They require no maintenance and are tamper proof.

 

 

Risk Areas Identified


Human error, theft of appliances, particularly boilers, unreliable tenants and owners, 'cowboy fitters', in fact every property with gas should have Magne-Flo automatic gas valves fitted. The valves are a 'fuse' for gas safety

 

An important by-product of this valve is realised in the event of the most common of fires in the home - kitchen fires. If the fire takes hold, it will melt the solder that joins the copper gas pipes. Should this happen and the pipes separate, the Magne-Flo valve will cut off the gas at the meter, limiting the damage. This will protect fire crews called to the scene.
