VALVE PROVING DEVICE
The Valve Proving Device option checks that both safety shutoff
valves in a Compact Fuel Train are fully closed before a system
startup and after shutdown when wired and interlocked with a
suitable flame monitoring relay as shown in the wiring diagrams
on Sheet 1597A-5. The Valve Proving Device will halt the start-up
sequence to a burner if it detects an open safety shutoff valve,
thus preventing ignition under dangerous conditions. For IRI
requirements, the Valve Proving Device can be used in
lieu of a
NFPA 86-2003 compliant
IRI approvable (when ordered as 1595A-V with Valve Proving
Device in lieu of Vent Line)

System designer to determine if 23 mesh is sufficient for application.
The 1595A Double Shut-off Valve combines two safety shut-
off valves in one housing. This reduces piping costs and space
The 1595A Double Shutoff Valve is recommended for industrial
and commercial process heating and boiler applications that
require two safety shutoff valves in series, with visual indication
and FM valve seal overtravel proof-of-closure switch. They can
be used with air, natural gas, propane and other non-corrosive
Pre-packaged compact gastrain systems are easily created
without additional piping by adding surface mounted devices
such as high and low gas pressure swtiches, valve proving
system or pressure regulator (see Bulletin 1597A).
All valve components are designed and built to ISO 9001
standards to ensure safe, reliable operation
Two actuators with independent valve operation.
Standard visual position indicator on first valve.
Standard valve seal overtravel FM proof-of-closure switch with
visual indication on second valve.
Test nipples downstream of each valve for a permanent and
ready means to make tightness checks.
Fast cycling operation.
Maximum operating pressure 7 psi.
Standard 1/2" to 2" NPT threaded flanges.
Compact design saves installation space.
Dual solenoids, integral flanges, and side taps reduce piping
time and costs.
When used with 1597A prepackaged fuel train, connecting
pipes for surface-mount devices are eliminated.
Slow-opening provides smoother light-off.
Optimized internal contours provide a low pressure drop.
Flow adjustment allows performance specific throttling.
