3 ESD Valve models

Electric Pneumatic Manual

The ESD Valves come in a variety of sizes and actuation methods. All the valves are machined from billet aluminum and can be customized to meet any need. Each valve is hard anodized to prevent corrosion.

We’ve tried to make ordering our valves easy by simply adding the type of actuator suffix to the size you need.


Actuation Type

MC = Manual Cable
EA = Electric Actuation (12v or 24v)
PA = Pneumatic Actuation

Valves under 3” are considered “small valves” and operate using a spring-loaded shaft. When the valve is placed in the open position, the spring is tensioned to about 24 lbs. of pressure. A detent pin resides in a groove in the handle. When that pin is pulled, the shaft rotates 90 degrees, closing the valve and keeps it closed with about 10 lbs. - 12 lbs of pressure. Because the shaft is centered in the valve, any engine backfire would create equal pressure on the butterfly flap while the constant tension on the spring keeps the valve in the closed position.

These valves use a “reset” handle and all must be manually reset to the open position.

The ESD Valves 3” and larger use a lever in place of the manual handle. This lever is attached to either a cable, an electric actuator or a pneumatic actuator. Similar to the smaller valves, the larger valves start in the open position but are held open using power. When power is cut, a combination of the spring and the actuator close the valve until power is restored. When power is engaged, the valve opens automatically.
