Basic Operation of the Triton 10 Series  ACV

Bolt force (in the Triton Tooling) is used to mechanically open the valve.  Gas force from the bottle closes closes the valve.  There is no ability to close the Triton ACV mechanically.   The Triton ACV is self-seating and self-closing.

Subsea Operation of the Triton 10 Series  ACV

This video animation shows the basic subsea operation of the Triton 10 Series Gas Charging Valve.  After charging the subsea plug is installed trapping atmospheric pressure above the bias piston.  As hydrostatic head enters the valve body the larger surface area of the bias piston results in a higher force (1.44X) exerting pressure upward trying to close the valve. The subsea bias piston prevents the valve from opening if hydrostatic pressure exceeds bottle pressure.
