Default General Suppression Question

Can anyone out there ID the "Non-Resetable" actuator for Ansull systems if there is one. I seem to remember there was an actuator that had to be sent to the Manufacturer to be Re-set if it Popped. Was it a CV98?

hf is resetable

Electrical actuation is accomplished by an HF electric
Actuator, Part No. 73327, interfaced through an
AUTOPULSE® Control System. This actuator can be used
in hazardous, indoor environments where the ambient temperature
range is between 0 °F to 130 °F (–18 °C to 54 °C).
The HF electric actuator meets the requirements of N.E.C.
Class I, Div. 1, Groups B, C, D and Class II, Div. 1, Groups
E, F, G. A maximum of two HF electric actuators can be
used on a single AUTOPULSE release circuit. When utilizing
only one HF electric actuator, an in-line resistor, Part
No. 73606, is required in the supervised release circuit.
In auxiliary or override applications, a manual-local override
valve actuator or a manual cable pull actuator can be
installed on top of the HF electric actuator by removing the
safety cap.
An arming tool, Part No. 75433, is required to reset the
actuator after operation. The actuator contains a standard
1/2 in. threaded female straight connector for electrical conduit
hookup.


and the booster is used with the hf Actuator

The Booster Actuator, Part No. 428949, is used when electric
actuation is required on the 1 in. selector valve, 2 in.
selector valve, or the CV-98 cylinder valve. The actuator
mounts directly to the component and then a HF electric
actuator mounts to the top of the booster actuator.
The Booster Actuator requires resetting after actuation. A
Reset Tool, Part No. 429847, is available for this use.



Electrical actuation of a CV-98 INERGEN valve is accomplished
by a CV-98 electric actuator interfaced through an
AUTOPULSE Control System. This actuator can be used in
hazardous environments where the ambient temperature
range is between 32 °F to 130 °F (0 °C to 54 °C). The electric
actuator meets the requirements of N.E.C. Class I, Div.
1, Groups B, C, D and Class II, Div. 1, Groups E, F, G. A
maximum of two CV-98 electric actuators can be used on a
single AUTOPULSE release circuit. When using either one
or two CV-98 electric actuators, a current limiter module,
Part No. 427354, must always be used.
The Actuator Shipping Assembly contains a current limiter
module along with an installation instruction sheet.

this one has been deleted

Electrical actuation of an INERGEN® system CV-90 pilot
cylinder valve is accomplished by a solenoid valve electric
actuator interfaced through an AUTOPULSE® Control
System. This actuator can be used in hazardous environments
where the ambient temperature range is between
32 °F to 130 °F (0 °C to 54 °C). The solenoid actuator
meets the explosion-proof requirement of N.E.C. Class I,
Groups C and D and Class II, Groups E, F, G. A maximum
of one solenoid valve electric actuator can be used on a
single AUTOPULSE release circuit.

Yes, CV98 (metron).
They can be rebuilt on site,the acuator kit is available. As stated they are discontinued but there is a ton of them out there.
After activation the spent device will indicate a 'ground fault' on the panel.
For testing we use a 24 volt LED in place of that device.

This was replaced with the CV-90 in conjunction with a booster actuator. Just an add on device with a heavy loaded spring.this goes on the valve then the actuator screws to it.

Thanks ever so much for your help, Gents. I've been in and out(about 4 years) of Suppression for about 9 years total, but with a prolonged absence I've forgotten a few things. This kind of forum is very helpful to me.
P.S Happy New Year.

I know what you meen. I'm just back from a 3 year "Hiatis".
7 yrs before that. You forget alot quickly, but it is just like rideing a bike.
The best advantage... the codes change quickly, so what you forgot may not matter as much.

Default Like Riding a bike

Leland; I suppose it is a lot like riding a bike. When I got back in the field a lot came back, there is still agood deal I need to re-learn, and new codes etc. to be learnt. I also have been fortunate to have an old friend in the Industry from a company I was with before and we've kept in touch. He has been very helpful.
Ruffio
P.S. Thanks again for your help

Leland; How's it going? Good I Hope.
Thanks for the follow-up. You just take apart the Actuator and Pop that in (Connect it).
By the Way, Do you know anyone Hiring in the NY Metro Area?
I now belong to the ranks of the poor unfortunates who call themselves "The Pissed-Off---Laid-Off" ! What are you gonna do? I am spreading my resume on the Waters and Hoping for bites.
Hope you're not a member of the club.
My regards to Pro-Tech1 if you happen to hear from him.
Ruffio

Good to hear from you,
Yes I have been in that club since 2/4/09. But... just got called back last monday. That's good.

Pro-Tech1 - I have not seen any posts lately, I hope all is well.


Thats it (replacement)- remove the snap ring on the top and the nut spins off.

I try to carry a few on the truck. just for those days when I go brain dead.
Easy way to know if you fired it off--- Panel will show a ground fault.
