Emergency Relief Vents For Tanks
Motherwell Tank Protection CNC 121 Emergency Relief Vents provide an emergency pressure relief openning for storage tanks when exposed to overpressures. Access Manways are non-sparking manhole covers which permit access to low pressure storage tanks and can provide emergency venting capacity in the event of fire. They are used extensively on bulk Liquid storage tanks, including floating roof tanks. We are manufacturers with exacting quality standards and backed by over 50 years experience. Sizes Range from 10" (250mm) to 36" (900mm)
Principle of Operation
Emergency relief vents are fitted to storage tanks to allow emergency flow due to the excessive venting requirement from a fire burning around a storage tank. Their use eliminates a costly tank rupture by providing emergency venting from abnormal internal pressure beyond the capability of the pressure relief vent. In the event of a fire the pallet lifts at a pre-determined pressure, thus supplying a large venting area.
These models employ a PTFE insert, affording a tight seal below set pressure, between the pallet and the corrosion resistant seat. The pressure/vacuum model is fitted with an additional spring-loaded vacuum valve that will open under negative pressure to protect the tank from any vacuum condition damage that may occur.
