The Eagle series trapped key valve interlocking systems ensure that users follow a pre-determined sequence of operation for startup and maintenance on generators in power stations, refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial applications. Kirk Eagle series valve interlocks integrate with its mechanical and electromechanical trapped key interlock series for a comprehensive process safety scheme.

Interlocking systems are designed to site requirements and are fitted to the gas control valves. The Kirk sequence control unit then regulates the release of the uniquely coded keys required to move safely through the steps of the sequence. The robust oversized keys cannot be duplicated and the sequence cannot be circumvented. The Eagle series also features integral valve interlocks to fit every type and size of quarter and multi-turn valves as well as bolt and electro-mechanical interlocks. The Eagle series are made of 316 stainless steel with keyways protected by a gasketed flip cover, which allows them to be used in harsh environments.
