Morrison Brothers 939 Fusible Valve Quality Alert Bulletin!

Morrison-Bros_logomorrison-939-valveMorrison Brothers has sent a notice to all distributors who have purchased the 1/2″ 939 Fusible Valve (Morrison Part #: 939—0200 1V).  The reason for this notice is a recent Quality Alert Bulletin received from R.W. Beckett Corporation, who supplies Morrison with the 939 Valve, specifically regarding the 1/2″ model.  No other sizes or models have been affected.  The purpose for the bulletin is a deficiency in the 1/2″ model; when exposed to temperatures exceeding the handle’s temperature rating, the valve may fail to properly shut off the flow of fuel, potentially resulting in a ruptured fuel line.  Beckett is currently working on a redesigned valve that will eliminate this potential risk, which is anticipated to be available by January 1, 2017.

The recommended remedy for customers who purchased and are currently using these valves is an immediate field retrofit or replacement.  In the case of the former, Beckett will provide retrofit kits upon request and will pay a $50.00 labor allowance for each valve retrofitted.  In the case of the latter, Beckett will provide credit for the valve as well as a $125.00 labor allowance for each valve replaced.

For more information, refer to the official Quality Alert Bulletin.

Morrison Introduces New Oil/Water Sensor

Morrison Oil-Water Sensor

Morrison Bros. Co. has introduced a new oil/water sensor to their 925 line, a float-activated simple switch device able to gauge the accumulation of oil in oil/water separators.  Set point configurations for the sensor include your choice of 1-2 interface floats (sink in oil and fuel but float on water) and 0-2 standard floats (float on oil, fuel, and water).  The sensor is compatible with the 918AC System Interface to allow for audio and visual alarm functionality.

For more details, check out the official spec sheet.
