All the advantages of a spectacle blind with handwheel acutation.
Line Blind Valves are often used along with block and bleed valves to provide positive isolation for maintenance After the block and bleed valve is closed and equipment is depressurized and drained, the Line blind can be operated into a close position to provide additional isolation from process fluids entering the maintenance area.
Line Blind provide visual proof that a line is properly and securely blanked off with no possibility of any flow or leakage through a valve during maintenance.
The flow can be diverted to other items of equipment but not just bypassed around the blank as this would compromise the safety function of the spectacle blind. The flow has to be valved off and pressure relieved prior operating the line blind.
TMC Valves will also service existing Line Blind Valves of many brands.
