Lexair lockout valves (Patent Pending) were designed for railcar service and are ideal for any heavy duty industrial or mobile pneumatic supply line application. In accordance with OSHA 1910.17 procedures, lockout valves are used during maintenance and service procedures of pneumatically operated equipment to remove the hazardous stored energy.
Advantages of lockout values are as follow:
Lockout valves are designed for one or more safety padlocks to be attached to the valve. This prevents accidents when more than one person is working on locked-out equipment. For a lockout valve with multiple padlocks, use of an OSHA approved “lockout/tagout” hasp allows each worker will be assigned a safety padlock. Until each worker removes their safety padlock from the hasp, the machine remains locked out and the air supply cannot be turned on.
Lexair lockout valves offer industry-standard design plus performance enhancing features. Lexair lockout valves provide a simple and quick way to exhaust downstream pressure on pneumatic systems. When in the closed position (pushed in), the valve can be locked with a user-supplied safety padlock to prevent unauthorized pressurization. When installed at the supply point of a circuit, these heavy-duty lockout valves ensure the isolation of pneumatic energy during service or maintenance procedures.
Lexair lockout valves are “Made in the USA.”
