3ObjectiveTo determine the root cause and develop a solution to various issues experienced with Parker PGI’s minimum bleed valve assembly.Issues Experienced:Handle mechanism failureSwivel connection issuesHandle is moving from the home position at undesirable times.Swivel connection is not securely locking to the tanks during filling operations.
4goalsRedesign handle to prevent failure at post- production in order to eliminate accidental releaseDesign a locking mechanism for the swivel connectionEnsure design follows UL 125 specifications and can be used with current repair kits manufactured by Parker PGIMaintain a fluid release capacity of no more than 7.6 cc’s
5Tasks completed1. Third Design Iterations of Swivel Connection 2. Evaluating the possibility of implementing a spring loaded design to the swivel connection 3. Procurement of Materials 4. Fabrication of design iteration 3
8Action items1. Design iterations • Constant improvements being made 2. Prototypes • Pending Rapid Prototype Machine clearance from Mr. G Taylor • Evaluation of prototypes 3. Fabrication of Final product • Machining of parts • Evaluation
