Pipelife Gas-Stop™ is an Excess Flow Valve that is installed in gas service and distribution lines. In the event of damage to the pipe infrastucture, e.g. in course of construction work, the Pipelife Gas-Stop shuts off automatically within fractions of a second and thus prevents gas from escaping.
Almost 10 million Pipelife Gas-Stop in 40 countries around the world ensure enhanced safety in gas supply networks. In approximately 50,000 cases, uncontrolled gas leaks and possible personal injury or property damage were prevented.
Pipelife Gas-Stop™ for service lines
One of the most common causes of unintended gas escapes is damage to service lines in the course of civil engineering work. The Pipelife Gas-Stop ™ offers extra safety and protection.
Regional transport and distribution lines are set up with operating pressures of up to 16 bar. Since 1997, further developed Gas-Stop ™ have been installed in these distribution systems of dimensions d63 / DN50 to d160 / DN150.
For the various product lines, there are different international certifications for the Pipelife Gas-Stop ™ in various European countries and also overseas, depending on the respective pipe network-specific requirements.
