  • Ammonia Valves - How to Install, Handle & Operate Valves Safely

    Ammonia, in its various amounts of dilution, is a disastrous element. The anhydrous ammonia is classified as a toxic and dangerous gas for the environment. It can form explosive mixtures upon reaction with air (16-25%) as it is a flammable gas (autoignition temperature 651 °C). Ammonia reacts violently with halogens too. Due to such explosive nature of the gas, it is important to be very cautious about its storage & handling.

    Handling Ammonia

    • You must be certified to work with anhydrous ammonia.
    • While working with ammonia, you must importantly wear goggles, gloves and breathing apparatus.
    • It is vital to drain all tanks, piping, and hoses of anhydrous ammonia completely before installing, removing, or repairing any equipment.
    • Have sufficient amount of water before working with ammonia.

    Installing & Operating Ammonia Valves

    • Ensure that the valve is turned off before installation & place it in a direction in relation to the flow.
    • Apply a pipe thread sealant to a male pipe thread to be installed into a valve.
    • Install the valve into a pipe or hose assembly and tighten it using a wrench.
    • Before operating a valve, ensure that it is attached to appropriate piping & also that an appropriate valve is attached to the outside of the valve.
    • Turn off any downstream valve that is open to prevent ammonia from spraying into the air.
    • Never open the valve partially.
    • Never leave the valve open unattended. It must be open only while in use.

    Maintaining Ammonia Valves

    • Check the valves regularly for any leaks.
    • If you observe leaks, try to tighten the valve. If it doesn’t stop, replace with a new valve.
    • Constantly observe if any of the valves have worn out and consider replacing the worn out valves at the earliest.

  • 7 Steps about How to Inflate a Helium Balloon Using Latex Inflators

    Helium balloons exist almost everywhere there is a celebration. And it’s simple too!

    Here are 7 easy and quick steps that will help you to inflate helium balloons on your own.

    1. Get a helium tank: Helium is required to fill in the balloons. You can either rent a tank or buy one. Renting is a good option if you rarely party. But if you party hard often, it is better to buy one and use all the helium in the cylinder till it lasts.
    2. Buy the balloons: Whoa! There is a huge variety out there. But don’t buy the normal rubber birthday balloons as they won’t stay afloat for long. Instead, the shiny mylar balloons of those made of latex would make a better choice.
    3. Place the valve over the nozzle of helium tank: Ensure that the valve end fits well into the open end of the balloon so that there is no leakage. Also, check the balloon for any holes.
    4. Switch on the balloon inflator to let the gas out: Now, you can allow the latex/mylar balloon filler to escape the gas at required pressure.
    5. Observe the inflation & stop when the balloon is full: Keep an eye on the balloon & check how much blown up you want it to be. Most of the mylar balloon inflators automatically shut off when the balloon is stretched to its maximum.
    6. Remove the balloon systematically: This would require a bit of diligence. You need to pinch the end of the balloon and stretch it to take it off the valve.
    7. Tie the string: There are balloon inflators that tie the balloons for you. However, you can also tie it on your own. Preferably, tie some sort of weight to the balloon so that it doesn’t fly off.

    It is really simple, isn’t it? Now, if you are looking out for ordering a balloon inflator that perfectly fits into your helium cylinder, contact 440-346-1259 to speak to the professionals of JTC Valve Sales, leading providers of industrial valves & regulators.

  • A Guide to Industrial Valves - Types & Functions

    Cylinder Valves are typically the most useful component of any industrial equipment or machine. Thus, it is important to understand their functionality and types in detail. Although these are tiny items, valves control the working of most of the machines. The mechanical device blocks a pipe partially or fully to change the amount of liquid or gas that passes through it. This small but critical function of the valves cannot be neglected as a slight more or less amount of substance released from the valve can lead to hazardous disasters.

    Industrial valves regulate the pressure of gas or liquid it releases so that an apt amount is delivered and the best output is delivered. They are often made from plastic or metal and consist of different parts – the stem, the body, bonnet, trim, actuator, and packing. It is essential that all the parts of the valves are strictly adhered to each other at the right places as any defect may lead to serious accidents and even explosions.

    Here are some important valves:

    Check valves: Check Valves are used to allow a proper flow of air, liquids and steam/condense gases. They are flow sensitive and rely on the line fluid to open or close. Some valves like swing check valves allow automatically close when the pressure decreases and closes fully when the flow reaches to zero. These valves prevent the reverse flow in a piping system.

    Gas/Cryo Valves Gas/Cryo Valves : Series LPG Valves

    Gas/Cryo Valves: Specially designed for allowing the flow of cryogenic gases including Oxygen, LNG, and Nitrogen. The cryogenic valves ensure you durability and safety. Sherwood and Rego cryo valves are the best for use. Series LPG valves are popular cryo valves that are used to forklift trucks, engine fuel installations, RVs and over 1000 gallon water capacity tanks.

    Gate Valves: These valves can be opened or closed just by lowering the metal gates across them. However, you will have to completely open or close the valve as they may not function properly while partially open.

    Needle Valves: Needle valves function precisely and are mostly found in car engines, carburetors, and central heating systems.

    Relief Valves: These are tamper resistant valves designed for use with gases not only fluids. The relief valves are used in cryogenic relief containers and vapor line safety relief application.
