FCT Emergency Shut Down Valves - ESD Valve

FCT Emergency Shut Down Valves (ESDV, ESD, ESV, SDV) are used to isolate pressure and flow from a particular source during an overpressure situation or detection of a dangerous event. ESD valves are integrated into the design of the plant system equipment and can be installed in-line to any location upstream, midstream or downstream. • Immediate control of overpressure, high liquid level or both with integrated design • Integrated control panel by FCT • Pneumatically or hydraulically operated • Upstream installation flexibility due to connective design The emergency shutdown function is always performed by an emergency shut down valve. An emergency shut down valve (also referred to as SDV or Emergency shutdown valve, ESV, ESD, or ESDV) is an actuated valve designed to stop the flow of a hazardous fluid upon the detection of a dangerous event. This provides protection against possible harm to plant team, equipment or the environment. ESDV form part of a Safety instrumented system. The process of providing automated safety protection upon the detection of a hazardous event is called Functional Safety which FCT has pioneered for the last three decades. FCT offers a wide family of shutdown valves, actuators and positioners are engineered to prevent catastrophic incidents when deviations in critical processes occur. Our product lines cover a breadth of SIL, ANSI and DIN class ratings, providing solutions reliable enough to handle the most critical oil & gas applications, whether onshore, offshore or processing. Shutdown valves are primarily associated with the petroleum industry although other industries also require this type of protection system (power generation, chemical industry…)
