ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces the Modular L-O-X® Valve Air Entry Combination

POSTED 07/06/2009

(TROY, MI) – ROSS CONTROLS is proud to announce the introduction of its latest product, the Modular L-O-X® valve Air Entry combination. Combining three elemental products into one (filter, regulator and industry-leading lockout valve), this pre-engineered modular design consolidates multiple functions into a single space-saving and easy-to-service assembly.

ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces the Modular L-O-X® Valve Air Entry CombinationCreated with packaging, conveyor panels, and material handling applications in mind, the ROSS Modular L-O-X valve complies with ANSI/PMMI B.155.1 – 2006 and ANSI B11.GSR standards with its full size exhaust port and a verification port for visible pressure release indication (pop up or pressure switches are optional). Conforming to OSHA lockout requirements, the L-O-X is easy to operate and is lockable only in the off position. The Modular L-O-X® is also suitable for air entry applications.

Beyond this new L-O-X/filter/regulator assembly, ROSS is also offering air entry packages for Cat- 2, -3, and -4 applications for design flexibility. The Cat-2 design utilizes a sensing valve, while the Cat-3 and -4 designs utilize a DM1 Series E double valve and DM2® Series E double valve (respectively) for control reliability.

Multiple functions in a flexible, space-saving modular design – another way ROSS helps you achieve a safer and more efficient workflow. For more information on the ROSS Modular L-O-X valve Air Entry combination, visit our Web site at or contact your local ROSS distributor.
