    When I was quoted a rotary valve specifically for explosion isolation the supplier commented that it was a variation to their normal production and in operation would need more maintenance to ensure the clearances did not get too large due to wear so making it unsuitable for explosion isolation.

    I believe that being placed on the market as a safety device testing by a third party would be necessary.
