Intertec Fire Shelter
In the event of a fire, emergency “shut down” (ESD)
valves and their actuators must be protected against
heat exposure in chemical and petrochemical plants.
In an emergency, the actuators must remain operable
for a minimum of 15 minutes after the outbreak of a
fire. More stringent requirements such as 30, 60 min.,
or higher are also possible.
For these applications INTERTEC has developed a
patented protective shelter system fully tested by a
certified 3rd party agency to meet UL 1709.
Corrosion resistant using GRP (glass reinforced synthetic materials) externally and internally
Custom designed and sized to fit each individual valve and actuator application
Split base plate to fit around valve shaft
Factory designed and supplied support frame
Complete shelter removal allows full access to repair or replace actuator
Optional access doors for service and maintenance
Standard details for tubing and electrical penetrations
Fabricated to meet the fire protection standards and time/temperature curve requirements of UL1709
Tested and certified by MPA- Dresden
