Blind Valves, also known as Line Blind Valves, Spectacle Blinds,8 Blind or Blind Flanges are safety components that completely restrict flow through a pipe. They prevent all material flow so that maintenance, construction, and/or other activities can safely occur downstream. They also provide a visual cue to show workers what position they are in, adding an extra safety element.
Lind Blinds are commonly used in tandem with Block and Bleed Valve assemblies to provide positive isolation from both the fluid and any potential gases/particulates associated with the system. Other types including sliding blinds, ring spacers, and other valves which all work in different ways.
Through a means of actuation, the blind valve can be rotated so that the solid disc prevents further flow through the pipe, and the hollow disk protrudes from the valve to show that the valve is currently in the closed position. Line Blinds are known for their excellent safety reputation for small and large projects. To buy the right Line Blind Valve for your application, contact one of our valve experts today.
There are a few variations to Line Blind Valves that are specific for certain applications. Line Blinds can also be called Line Blind Valves, 8 Blind, Spectacle Blinds, Cam Set Blind Valves or Blind Flanges, dependent on their specific design.
For instance, Cam Set Blind Valves are used for applications that require a high degree of accuracy. Using rectangular spectacle flanges, they ensure that the open and closed positions remain protected from user error.
Spectacle Blinds get their name from their “figure eight” or “glasses” shape. They are optimal for regular switching between open and closed positions and can be machined from one piece of metal or fabricated into two separate pieces.
Line Blinds are typically used inpulp and paper, shipping, mining, plastics, bulk storage and petrochemical industries. Line Blind Valves are very useful for large-scale applications where corrosive media flows through the application.
