Utilities supplying natural gas and propane use Firebag® thermal shutoffs to protect residential and commercial dwellings with a level of fire safety previously not available. By installing a FireBag thermal activated shutoff, prior to the gas meter, these utilities protect the safety and property of their customers and first responders in the event of a fire.
FireBag Thermal Activated Shutoffs are available in multiple piping configurations and sizes to accommodate the varying piping requirements of a natural gas or propane system. A recommended FireBag piping orientation and design illustration is highlighted as follows or simply contact your local Firebag distributor for additional information and specifications:
- A — Upstream of the Regulator
Installed prior to the regulator, Male x Female FireBag configurations are available in 3/4″ – 2″ NPT sizes.
- B — Upstream of the Meter Bar
For installations after the regulator and prior to the meter bar, Female x Male FireBag configurations are available in 3/4″ – 1-1/2″ NPT sizes.
- 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.
