Now natural gas and propane utilities are able to add thermal shutoff protection to multi-meter installations at residential and commercial buildings, adding a level of fire safety previously unattainable. Various FireBag configurations are available for multi-meter gas manifolds, where each residence or business has its own gas meter. The FireBag configuration and sizes are available to utilities to meet the following installation options.
- A — In-line with the Manifold
FireBag thermal shutoffs can be installed “prior-to” or “coupled-with” a multi-meter manifold to provide protection to multiple meters using just one device. Sizes include 1-1/4”, 1-1/2” and 2” in Female x Female configurations.
- B — In-line with the Manifold Nipples to the Meter
Individual Firebag installations place the thermal activated shutoff fittings between the manifold nipple and inlet to the meter bar. Sizes include 1”, 1-1/4” and 1 ½” NPT Female x Male configurations.
- C — In-Line with the Meter Swivels & Nuts
A FireBag Meter Connection Kit can easily be installed on new or existing meter installations by utilizing a FireBag fitting in-line with the inlet swivel of the meter and accompanied by a BLANK companion fitting installed with the outlet swivel, keeping the meter balanced and level. Sizes include a 1/2″ x 3/4″ reducing kit, 3/4″, and 1″ NPT Male x Female configurations.
