Itron/Actaris is a world leader in the design and manufacture of
meters and associated systems for the electricity, gas,
water and heat markets. Our innovative products and
systems integrate the latest technologies to meet the
evolving needs of public or private energy and water
suppliers, utility services and industrial companies.
Our residential and industrial meters, converters,
regulators and stations, together with remote meter
reading and prepayment systems, assure precise
measurement and control of this safe, clean economical
We produce a wide range of reliable, accurate meters and
registers, encompassing both mechanical and electronic
metering technologies, for precision measurement of a
variety of liquid products, from refined fuels
(Petroleum, LP Gas...) to chemicals and food ingredients.
Itron/Actaris has developed a complete range of regulators
with an integrated safety valve. These provide a compact
and safe solution for residential, industrial &
commercial customers using modern gas distribution gas
networks at a few bars of pressure.
The safety valve offers protection if there is an
abnormal increase in downstream pressure. It immediately
interrupts the gas flow, protecting the downstream
installation from any leakage defect in the regulator,
and can only be reset manually by a qualified operator.
Itron/Actaris safety valves are designed to shut themselves
off under specific conditions such as signal loss in the
detection system, excess pressure (OPSO), or (optional)
if there is a fall in downstream pressure (UPSO), due to
downstream pipe rupture, for example. This increases the
safety of the installation. The safety valve is
completely independent of the regulator but both are
integrated into the same body, making a self-contained,
autonomous & extremely compact unit.
This range of regulators, for residential to light
commercial applications, meets the most stringent
requirements of the German codes of practices. All are
approved by DIN-DVGW and meet DIN 33882/VP200 (PN 1 and
PN 4 regulators) or the earlier DIN 3380 or 3381.
Increased safety features include gas loss protection,
high flow cut-off and fire resistance.
Itron/Actaris high pressure regulators are equipped with a
separate control and amplification system - or pilot, a
versatile and autonomous system that provides the
necessary energy for large size regulators, or for those
working in high pressure, to function. These
pilot-operated regulators are commonly used in all types
of network stations, from city gate stations to district
stations providing the networks with very low pressure.
They are also used in large metering stations which
supply large industrial customers.
With either integrated or separate safety valves, they
allow for different arrangements of control and safety
devices, such as monitor and active regulators or active
regulator with upstream shutoff, and multiple
combinations of safety devices.
These regulators are designed to provide dependable
first and second stage regulation for intermediate and
high pressure applications. Typical applications include
first stage regulation, farm & suburban taps, compressed
air systems and medium to high pressure industrial
Itron/Actaris safety shutoff valves (SSV) for applications
where redundant safety systems are required, are
distinct from the Itron/Actaris range of regulators. The
security valve offers a positive security in the case of
abnormal increase in downstream pressure, when it
immediately interrupts the gas flow, and can only be
reset manually by a qualified operator. It thus protects
the downstream installation from any leakage defect in
the regulator. Our safety valves are designed to shut
off if there is excess pressure (OPSO) and also, upon
request, if there is a lack of downstream pressure (UPSO).
Further, it increases the safety of the installation by
shutting itself off in case of downstream pipe rupture
or signal loss in the detection system.
Itron/Actaris creep relief valves (SRV) maintain downstream
pressure under set value by venting excess gas into the
atmosphere, to avoid triggering safety devices by
thermal expansion or during transient regimes of
