Adjustable Ball Valve Lockout
Part No. : ABVL01 /ABVL02
Adjustable ball valve lockout
Polypropylene valve lockout
Valve lockout devices shutoff many kinds of pressured valves including: ball valve, butterfly valve, cylinder valve, gate valve, plug valve and pneumatic. Adjustable and universal devices are available for additional flexibility.
The small lockout devices will lock pipes with diameters measuring from ½" to 3". Our large ball valve lockout devices can lock out pipes that range from 2" to 8" in diameter. Device material also varies depending on application.
The adjustable ball valve lockout is made from polypropylene, highly resistant to cracking and abrasion, resistant to extreme weather temperature conditions.
The two halves of the lockout encompass the ball valve handle to secure it from inadvertent activation of the valve.
The polypropylene valve lockout is equippedtogether with padlocks. Padlock locked shackle max diameter is 9mm.
All colors are available, normally red in stock.
Suitable for pipes 1/2" to 2.5" in diameter,OPEN on pipes from 1/2" to 1.25"
Suitable for pipes 2" to 8" in diameter

Selection process of ball valve lockout:
1. Determine the number of ball valves in the factory;
2. Determine the size of ball valves in the factory and count the number of each size section;
3. Clear the usable range of straight plate ball valve locks;
4. Determine the locking frequency of ball valves of different sizes in the factory;
5. Determine the number of straight plate type ball valve locks and ball valve locks with backstop.
Many serious accidents have happened when someone thought a machine or the power to it was safely off. "Lock-out tag-out" is a way to protect yourself and others by ensuring that machines remain completely, temporarily off. Without a lock-out tag-out system there is the possibility that a machine will unexpectedly start up, either because of stored energy which was not correctly released or through the actions of someone starting the process without realizing that it isn't safe to do so.
The lock-out tag-out standard requires that hazardous energy sources be "isolated and rendered inoperative" before maintenance or servicing work can begin. These energy sources include electrical (either active current or stored as in a capacitor), pneumatic, hydraulic, mechanical, thermal, chemical, and the force of gravity. It is important to remember all of the energy sources must be "isolated and rendered inoperative." Overlooking an energy source has proved fatal on several occasions.
OSHA requires three basic elements in a lock-out tag-out program. These are training, written procedures, and inspections. Training is required for two types of people; "authorized employees" and "affected employees." Authorized employees are people who do the maintenance or servicing work. They are the people who actually perform the lock-out tag-out. Affected employees are people who may be affected by or work near equipment which is locked or tagged out. Affected employees are not permitted to perform servicing or maintenance work which requires a lock-out or tag-out.
Written procedures detailing the lock-out tag-out procedure are required for equipment having two or more energy sources. Written procedures communicate important information to persons performing lock-out tag-out. They identify energy sources, provide step-by-step instruction for locking or tagging out energy sources, releasing stored energy, and verifying the equipment cannot be re-started after lockout is applied. Group lock-out tag-out procedures must also be clearly documented. Procedures must be kept up-to-date, and changes must be communicated to everyone who may possibly be affected by them. They are only useful if all the information they contain is correct.
