Why Use A Double Valve?
A double valve is designed to promote safety in the operation of many pneumatically controlled A machines and satisfy regulatory requirements for valves used on mechanical power presses employing pneumatically controlled clutch and brake mechanisms.
A ROSS double safety valve has two valve elements independently controlled by two solenoid pilot valves. The two valve elements share common inlet, outlet, and exhaust ports. When the pilot valves are simultaneously energized, the two main elements are operated simultaneously so that during normal operation the valve functions like a three-way valve with a single element.
If one of the valve elements does not open or close in sync with the other, the valve is designed to keep the pressure on the outlet port at less than 2% of the inlet pressure. This is an inherent safety characteristic of ROSS’ double valve design. Valve element redundancy provides a safety factor as the likelihood of both valve elements malfunctioning on the same cycle is considered extremely remote.
Run-to-failure is not an option
The run-to-failure idea isn’t an option with a Ross double safety valve because failure might result in property damage or even loss of life. The minimum acceptable level of Ross double safety valve repair is periodic testing, with internal inspection and maintenance as dictated by the results of testing.
Troubleshooting is the first step in a proper a Ross double safety valve repair. Unless you determine and correct the failure’s root cause, the problem will recur. Repair shops across the country are qualified to perform double valve repair and testing. Working to a nationally recognized standard, double valve services facilities disassemble, clean, inspect, and machine or replace parts if necessary, reassemble, test, seal and apply a repair nameplate for traceability.
Maintenance and testing procedures must follow the rules and regulations set by the respective national work-safety institutions. These procedures should only be performed by persons trained and experienced in the use of pneumatic equipment. Regulations generally require that maintenance and test procedures be performed at least once a year.

Primary concerns of manufacturing plants include maintaining a safe operation, minimizing unscheduled downtime and preventing environmental degradation. Improperly maintained double valves may cause danger to equipment and personnel and contribute to unscheduled outages because they don’t operate consistently.
Such inconsistent operation might cause the valves to fail meeting no less than three nationally-recognized requirements, set pressure tolerance, seat tightness criteria and flow rated capacity.
Properly repaired valves protect manufacturing facilities from disastrous failure, reduce unscheduled downtime and prevent pollution. To have the highest possible level of confidence in plant safety, it’s imperative that you contract only with a nationally-recognized repair facility when maintenance is needed.
