Trident recalls gas system solenoid
Trident Rubber Inc. has recalled the solenoid valves in its quarter-inch Trident Marine LPG Systems sold between March and October 2010. The recall was issued late last year when the company discovered that defective quarter-inch 12-volt and 24-volt Parker-branded solenoid valves were used in the systems. The LP gas control solenoid valve may not fully turn off, allowing gas to continue to flow to the distribution system until it is turned off at the LPG cylinder. The plunger piston assemblies, which move to open or close the valve to gas flow, are defective.
Anyone who bought a quarter-inch Trident Marine LP Gas System between March and October last year should inspect the system’s gas control solenoid to see whether the part number and serial numbers match those that have been recalled. If both the part and serial numbers match the descriptions below, discontinue use of the system, remove the solenoid valve, and return it to Trident Rubber Inc. for replacement (Trident Rubber Inc., 585 Plum Run Road, Canonsburg, Penn. 15317). There will be no charge.
Affected quarter-inch, 12-volt solenoid valves will have the following serial and part numbers: Parker Part Number: 04F20C2-Z05A1FOC 75 and serial number (date codes) J1010T or J1110T or J1210T. Affected quarter-inch, 24-volt solenoid valves will have the following serial and part numbers: Parker Part Number 04F20C2-Z05A1FOC 80 and serial number J1010T.
