Diesel Engine Safety Solutions

We work with engine manufacturers and oil and gas companies to design and develop safety products and solutions for engines.

Hydrocarbons drawn into diesel engines through the air intake system act as an uncontrolled fuel source and can lead to dangerous engine overspeed or runaway. The most effective way to prevent engine runaway is to shut off the air intake into the engine.  Our extensive line of air intake shutoff valve systems and auxiliary equipment includes AMOT, Chalwyn, Rigsaver and Roda Deaco products.

System Selection Guide

System Selection Guide

AMOT has a wide range of fully automatic and manual shutoff systems. This System Selection Guide provides an overview of the more common types of air intake shutoff systems used to prevent diesel engine overspeed or runaway. The system guides available in the Document tab provide information on additional types of systems available within each brand line.


Air Intake Shutoff Valves

Air Intake Shutoff Valves

Air intake shutoff valves (often referred to as AISV or ASOV) and systems provide emergency overspeed shutdown protection for diesel engines and are the most effective way of preventing a runaway situation. The valves completely block the engine air intake system, cutting off an uncontrolled external fuel source and the air required to keep the engine running.


Flameproof Alternators

Flameproof Alternators

Standard automotive type alternators are a continuous potential source of ignition when operated in hazardous atmospheres where combustible concentrations of gas, vapors, or dust may exist. AMOT offers a range of ATEX Group I mining and Group II hazardous area approved flameproof alternators which mount on diesel engines as direct replacements for standard alternators.

Spark Arrestors

Spark Arrestors

Spark arrestors are a key safety requirement for diesel engine exhaust systems where a stray spark may cause ignition of combustible material. Spark arrestors are required in gas, vapor or dust hazardous area applications such as mining, surface, or off-shore processes as well as forestry or agricultural applications.
