Evaluation of safety shutoff valve system on methane gas pipelines under mine fire conditions. The fail-safe control system uses a pneumatically actuated valve (fig. 1) to shut off the flow of methane from the degasification borehole to the meth- ane drainage pipeline when the system detects an unsafe condition.

Safety is our core value, and the following principles guide everything we do: 1. Our goal is zero incidents - a perfect record of safety and reliability for the national pipeline Size: 1MB.

For safety reasons, during pipeline maintenance, the pipeline operator may have to release natural gas into the atmosphere.

To reduce the methane emitted during maintenance, operators try to eliminate the amount of natural gas within a section of pipeline before opening the valve, or divert the gas around the section of pipe. The purpose of a safety shut-off system is to automatically shut off the gas supply to the premises, or a selected part of the premises such as a commercial kitchen, when the fire extinguishing system or.

must close the valves remotely and/or automatically. If the control system is part of the solution, the system must monitor the pipeline pressure, react if it detects linebreak conditions, and signal the actuator to close the line valves.

Overall, the system must be reliable with minimal maintenance. As the map shows, many busy highways cross pipelines carrying natural gas.

Shutoff valves. Pipeline Safety: Safety of Gas Transmission and Gathering Pipelines. This NPRM proposes to revise the Pipeline Safety Regulations applicable to the safety of onshore gas transmission and gathering pipelines.
