Engine overspeed protection

Diesel engine protection equipment manufacturer, Wyndham Page, has launched an innovative range of cost-competitive shutdown valves for diesel engine overspeed protection in areas in which hazardous concentrations of flammable gas or vapours may exist.

The new V series mechanical action valves use a new concept design offering enhanced safety and operational advantages to automatically close the air intake once a pre-set engine speed is exceeded – and challenge traditional overspeed protection valves that have remained unchanged in their basic operation for several decades.

Suitable for both normally aspirated and turbocharged diesel engines up to 275kW (370 HP), these compact valves improve on the well-established differential pressure intake airflow principle for automatic shut-down.
