An economical control system designed to automatically shutdown as many as eight flammable, toxic, corrosive, or high-purity gas sources independently or in unison has been introduced by CONCOA.

Utilzsed for safety or process control in high-purity process, analytical, and research applications, CONCOA’s 585 Series Emergency Shutdown Controller is ideal for flammable or toxic gas shutdown control in the event of detection of a leak or fire. When deployed with CONCOA’s Series 586 Emergency Shutoff Valve kits and other safety accessories, the system maintains purity while providing instantaneous, fail-safe gas supply and flow shutdown.

Series 585 includes an integral ESTOP button for manual activation; an audible and visual alarm for high-profile visible and audible notification; 16 programmable input relays for remote buttons, flow switches, or other indicators; and up to eight programmable pneumatic output ports for control of CONCOA 586 Series Emergency Shutoff Valves.

In addition to high-visibility multicolor LEDs, the Emergency Shutdown Controller provides status monitoring and integration via 16 programmable output relays, event log, on-board web server, and e-mail alerts.

Series 586 Emergency Shutoff Valves feature Elgiloy® diaphragms, metal-to-metal seals, and machined barstock bodies to achieve 1 x 10-9 scc/sec Helium leak integrity. Offered in brass, chrome-plated brass, stainless steel or SilcoNert® 1020, the valves integrate seamlessly into any CONCOA continuous gas supply system.

CONCOA Emergency Shutdown systems are available with a wide variety of compatible safety components, including auxiliary ESTOP buttons, flow and pressure switches, leak detectors, and gas cabinets.
