Model No: 142

Designed for installation on bulk storage tanks, ERGIL Storagetech™’s Model 142 Pressure Relief Valve is designed to protect the tank from excessive internal pressure.

In the closed position the spring-loaded pallet and diaphragm assembly is held tightly against a seal to prevent the loss of vapour to atmosphere. As the internal pressure in the tank increases, due to product filling and vapour development, the pressure in tank increases and in the event that the set pressure of the unit is reached, the diaphragm will open and discharge the gas to atmosphere. The opening set-point is selectable from a range between +61 mbar and +1000 mbar (+24 inch W.C. and 400 inch W.C.), and the valve will close when the tank returns to a safe pressure.

Design & Manufacturing Specifications

The integrity of the seal is tested for leakage in accordance with API Standard 2521 – Use of Pressure-Vacuum Vent Valves for Atmospheric Loss.

The size of the vent should be calculated in accordance with API Standard 2000 (ISO 28300) – Venting Atmospheric and Low-Pressure Storage Tanks or other international standards.
