What is the meaning of CSO/CSC valves? Please explain their construction. What is their function in a refinery and when are they used?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Meaning of CSO/CSC valves31 July 2006 at 1:29pm"Car sealed means that the valve handle has been "locked" using a "seal." Today this would most commenly be a plastic strip but also old-fashioned wire and actual sealing wax can be used."
"CSO/CSC are different with LO/LC. The former uses wire and lead seal to limit operations to valve, people can break the seal in emergency situation. The latter uses chain and lock --- can't operate the valve until get the key."
