The Fuelstop 'TFV' was the first capillary operated fire valve to incorporate an integral shut off facility as part of the reset mechanism and is also supplied with 10mm tube nuts and olives as standard on the 3/8" body size, allowing time saving and economical installation.
All TFV fire valves are suitable for use with Class C and D fuels as well as LPG, and provide automatic shut off in the event of an overheat within a fuel burning appliance and fail safe shut off in the event of capillary or sensor failure.

Arguably the best quality Fire Valve in existence today... and its British made! Fluid filled capillary and bellows means that it is more responsive (than other air filled capillary and bellows on the market). We can therefore set the trip mechanism with more tollerance (this does not have to be set on a hair trigger), which results in zero nuisance tripping and within a tighter trip range. In fact it is the only fire valve we know of that is approved to British Standard BS 799 part 5.
Important Note about bio-fuels: The Fuelstop fire valves use viton seals and seats, which means they are compatible with bio-oils that meet the EN14214 standard (it is not possible to make a sweeping compatibility statement about bio-oils because there are many different types and people can blend their own). Using a bio-oil that has not been made to the EN14214 standard could damage the brass and the rubber seat, leading to leaks and other damage. In short, Fuelstop fire valves are fine for use with bio-oils that meet the EN14214 standard.
An innovative and robust design that meets the OFTEC Standard OFS E101: 1996, together with high manufacturing and quality standards, provide the TFV with accuracy in operation, durability and ease of installation.
