Line rupture protection valves (burst pipe protection), shuttle valves

Line rupture protection valves, also called pipe rupture protection valves are a type of check valve. The valves are normally mounted directly on the cylinder. They prevent uncontrolled cylinder movement in the event of a pipe rupture or hose break.

Shuttle valves are a type of check valve. They have two inlets and one outlet. As soon as a pressure signal is present on at least one of the two inlets, an outlet signal is generated. The inlet with the higher pressure is automatically connected to the outlet. The other inlet with lower pressure is blocked by a ball (OR operator).
