BelGAS introduces PSX2 Over/Under Pressure Slam Shut safety device

Automatically cuts off downstream flow when upper or lower limits are exceeded.

BelGAS, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high- and low-pressure regulator products for the natural gas industry, introduces the PSX2 Over/Under Pressure Slam Shut Device. Offering critical protection to downstream applications, the PSX2 automatically shuts down the downstream flow of gas when pressure exceeds either upper or lower set limits.

The PSX2 is the only device of its kind that is made in the USA, where it is crafted of quality steel and aluminum construction at the BelGAS plant in Newell, West Virginia. A full inventory is stocked and ready for shipment throughout North America, with a team of 40 engineers on staff in the event that custom solutions are needed for specific applications.

“We are able to alter materials to suit customer needs and can even make design adjustments so the product is the perfect fit,” said Andrew Marra, national sales manager.

The PSX2 works as a secondary component to BelGAS Series P200 and P300 regulators to protect downstream operations and equipment should the outlet pressure of the main regulator exceed the set point. Once tripped, the PSX2 requires a manual reset to reintroduce the flow downstream, an added safety benefit that encourages investigation and inspection.

“Natural gas utilities throughout North America are becoming increasingly aware of the need for these devices,” said Marra. “The wildfires on the West Coast vividly illustrate why there is sometimes a need to rapidly shut down gas flow. Other instances might be less dramatic, but still demonstrate a need to preserve safety.”

Each PSX2 unit is manufactured, assembled, and tested in-house at the BelGAS plant. The PSX2 is available with either internal or external registration. BelGAS is accepting orders now.
