Actuated Valves on steam systems and hot pipelines

The failure of Actuated Valves on hot systems is frustrating for many businesses, the loss of a control or high limit valve can in many cases stop production and therefore increase downtime substantially impacting on any companies profitability. At Besseges (Valves, Tubes & Fittings) Ltd we have a simple and effective solution to this issue, for more information please contact us or read on.

When installing an Actuated Valve on any hot system it important to protect the actuator and solenoid from the long term effects of heat transfer via the valve stem. To ensure the actuator is protected from the heat all our Actuated Valves for hot systems are supplied with TSM Kits if required.

TSM Kit for Actuated Valves 

These simple inexpensive devices offer a long term solution to a common problem, the most recent issue on a local food manufacturing site where they had multiple valve failures using normal solenoid valves. We supplied an Actuated Valve with a TSM Kit to replace the solenoid valve after each solenoid valve lasted only a matter of days and that was six months ago. Our customer has not experienced a problem since the replacement Actuated Valve was fitted. TSM Kits can also be retrofitted to some existing installations, please contact us for further information.

The alternative reason to fit a TSM kit to Actuated Valves

Although we have always supplied a TSM Kit as thermal protection, it is not what it was primarily designed for. TSM in long hand is TA-LUFT Stem Extension Mounting Kit and is used to prevent emissions from the valve stem seals and is designed to be mounted on manually operated valves as well as Actuated Valves. TSM kits can be fitted on valves from ¼” to 6” and the following table details materials and seals:
