Approved by OFTEC to OFS E101- 2015 the CFV Capillary Fire Valve is a ‘remote’ fire valve fitted to automatically shut off the fuel flow, in the event of an overheat condition, in a fuel burning appliance. The Capillary Fire Valve CFV will fail safe and shut off in the event of failure of the capillary or sensor.
This unit is only suitable for use with Class C and D fuel oils as well as Biofuel
blends up to B35.
All Capillary Fire Valve CFV models are suitable for use with suction or gravity fuel systems at –0.8 bar (-12 psi) vacuum and 2 bar (30 psi) positive head.
No maintenance is required, provided that the Capillary Fire Valve CFV is correctly installed. The Capillary Fire Valve CFV must be tested annually by subjecting the sensor to the models rated shut off temperature and ensuring the reset/shutoff button on the underside of the valve body pops out automatically indicating that the CFV Capillary Fire Valve has activated. Once the sensor has cooled push the reset/shutoff button back in to re-open the valve.
