Peter Paul Hazardous Location Valve Model E55

Contact us to get your personalized offer

PeterPaul dual orifice valves feature a closed body orifice and an open sleeve orifice in the de-energized position, preventing flow between the inlet and normally closed ports while allowing flow between the inlet and normally open ports. Additionally, PeterPaul explosion-proof valves are essential in environments with fire or explosion hazards due to the presence of flammable gases, vapors, liquids, combustible dust, or easily ignitable fibers. These hazardous location valves are recommended, and sometimes compulsory, where a high level of explosion protection is required.

  • Miniature Hazardous Location valve.
  • Flame-Proof construction.
  • High quality engineering.

Ordering Information:

Seal Material:  Replace ∆ with desired code  –  Blank = Nitrile (Buna)      S = Low Temp Buna.      N = FKM*      E = Neoprene    A = EPDM

When ordering valves or repair packs add voltage and frequency to complete valve number. for examples: valve (E55KJ8XCCM 120/60) repair pack (5KE55KJ AC)

When ordering operators add the letter “O” to the front of the valve number, replace body port number with the letter “D”: example: operator (OE55KJDDCCM 120/60)


Operating Conditions:

  • Media: Air, water, and other fluids compatible with standard Buna seals. Hot water, steam gasoline, and many oils require special seal materials. (Series 20 pressure ratings may change due to the viscosity of the liquid.)*
  • Valve Temperature Range:
    • Standard Valves – 0°F (-18°C) to 104°F (40°C) ambient; 0°F (-18°C) to 150°F (65°C) media.
    • Optional Valves – can tolerate much higher or much lower ambient and media temperatures.*
  • Maximum Operating Pressure Differentials: See table above.
  • Burst Pressure: 5,000 PSI
  • Leakage: Bubble tight for standard valves.
  • Vacuum: To 5 Microns*
