HaloValve Natural Gas Safety Breakaway Technology Approved by AGA

A new white paper from the American Gas Association (AGA) lists the approved steps that can be taken to prevent damage to natural gas meters via vehicle impact, negligence, ground settlement, damaged protective devices and acts of nature. The use of breakaway fittings that feature an engineered "weak link" are recognized by the AGA as an acceptable way to increase the level of safety and protection for gas meters - and the HaloValve utilizes patented breakaway technology to instantly seal the line following an impact incident, which prevents the potentially dangerous flow and accumulation of gas until the line can be repaired.
