The Haseloh Fuel Oil Safety Valve was designed to prevent oil loss from domestic oil tanks caused by broken or damaged oil lines, faulty pumps or filters. Designed to be installed inside the oil tank, its normal position is closed. It only opens when the furnace requires oil. The suction created by the fuel pump opens the magnetic internal valve. When the pump stops, suction ceases and the magnetic valve closes. The oil tank is no longer a container with a open outlet, dependant on the furnace to stop the flow of oil. The valve is a positive shut off at the tank. Oil lines range from 10 ft. to 100 ft. (average 15 ft. - 40 ft.), with the possibility of damage increasing with the length of the line. Damage to the line is irrelevant to the safe storage of the oil with this valve
CSA IR-5.1-15 was specifically written to provide rigorous and comprehensive testing standards for the Haseloh Fuel Oil Safety Valve (also known as Haseloh Anti-Siphon Valve). CSA IR-5.1-15 was written to conform to other recognised standards. The Haseloh Valve passed all CSA testing without any failures or modifications.
These standards are as follows:
ANSI Z21.15-2009 • CSA 9.1-2009
Manually Operated Gas Valves for Appliances, Appliance Connector Valves and Hose End Valves
Installation code for oil-burning equipment
CSA C22.2, No. 0.15-15

Some Considerations Incorporated In Valve Design
The main valve body was intentionally designed to be a one piece
construction. This is to ensure there are no joints that could be subject to
separation and leakage, as can be found in other ball and gate valve
construction. In addition, the operating components are internal to the one
piece valve body. This portion of the valve is located inside the tank, thus
providing further protection to the operating components. In the event of
valve shear off flush with the tank, the main operating components remains
inside the tank and are still active, eliminating uncontrolled flow from
The manual deactivation valve stem seal has double o-rings. This is to ensure
that the valve has a 2x safety margin. In addition to the double o-rings, the
valve stem hole is machined to exacting tolerances. The valve piston is
designed to be self cleaning.
The Haseloh Fuel Oil Safety valve is multi-positional. It can be used on bottom
feed, end feed and top feed fuel tanks. Cycle tests have demonstrated that
the life cycle of the valve far exceeds that of which would be considered a
standard life cycle of a tank.
Nickle Plated Neodymium Iron Boron rare earth magnets were selected for longevity instead of the standard steel spring found in traditional valves. Over time steel springs will weaken or break rendering the valve ineffective. NIB Magnets have a far greater life cycle than steel springs and will never break. The magnetism of rare earth magnets have a much longer life cycle than common metal or ceramic magnets and therefore have a longer life span.
The Haseloh Fuel Oil Safety Valve is an oil containment valve and can also be used as an anti-siphon valve.
