TiNi’s Frangivalve is a normally closed isolation valve that is capable of supporting pressures up to 10,000 psi. It is hermetically sealed using an all stainless steel valve body. Actuation is achieved by using a Frangibolt Actuator to break an internal barrier which bridges the inlet hole to the outlet port. The design is inherently scalable and available in a variety of sizes and flow rates.
TINI Frangivalve offers the following advantages:
NEA (Non-Explosive Actuators) – As with all TiNi products, the Frangivalve Actuator is non-pyrotechnic and field reset-able with a minimum qualified life of 50 cycles.
Customizable Valve Body – Fluid flow is through an all Stainless Steel valve body which may be configured per customer specification (i.e. tubing length, diameter, and interface) with a variety of swaged or welded end fittings.
Field Reset-able and Reliable – The Actuator is reset in the same manner as our Frangibolt Actuators (i.e. by compressing to a shorter length using a small press).
Redundant Firing Circuit – As with all TiNi Actuators a redundant firing circuit is incorporated. This can independently bring the valve to actuation in approximately 30 seconds.
Safe to Use and Operate – The Frangibolt does not pose any safety concerns to personnel, is low shock, and insensitive to ESD (Electro-Static Discharge).
