The AAC Valve is an “Air Actuated Closed” Diesel Engine Air Intake Shutoff Valve Device. It takes an air (pneumatic signal) to open the valve on the Engine Start up and during normal operating parameters. The valve is a butterfly style valve with an incorporated pneumatic actuator with a reset.
The AAC version of the FPE A Series of shutdown valves is designed to be installed in the air intake system of a diesel engine to provide an emergency means of rapid shutdown.
The AAC valve is suitable for applications where there is a supply of filtered dry or lubricated air (or inert gas) available form 3 to 8 Bar (43 to 116 psi).This air supply is used to close the AAC valve thereby bringing the running engine to a stop within a few seconds in an emergency. Venting of the air pressure signal results in the automatic reset of the valve to the open condition. This mode of operation makes the AAC valve suitable for applications where non-failsafe operation is permitted such as emergency vehicles etc.
A shutdown control system is required to automatically apply the air pressure signal to the AAC when engine overspeed or any other selected fault condition is sensed.
In standard form the AAC valve is available complete with hose adaptors as selected by the customer from a range of standard sizes – see diagram below. Where a requirement exists for a non-standard adaptor size or other alternative form of intake pipe connecton such as flanged joint, please pass details of requirement to FPE or your FPE supplier for invesigation.
The valve has a metal to metal seal when closed. It is designed for low closing friction and long life of the sealing surfaces and is designed to withstand high shock loads without malfunction.
The diagram below and the diagrams and data on page 4 covers the main features and basic dimensions of the aac including selection of options and order coding.
