BDO (butanediol), high pressure relief valve, deflagration / detonation flame arresters and pressure and vacuum breather valves

BIRKETT, MARVAC and AMAL offer a wide variety of tank protection solutions to ensure thermal stability of BDO tanks and protect contents, tanks and people from flames and explosions.

Creating a stable environment for BDO

Butanediol (BDO) is a non-corrosive organic industrial byproduct used to produce polyester resins, plasticisers and synthetic rubber, as well as a solvent for food flavouring agents. BDO requires relatively high storage temperatures to maintain its liquefied state, making pressure relief and adequate fire protection measures essential.

In order to protect BDO tanks from atmospheric pressure and provide thermal stability, BIRKETT offers a selection of Safety relief / pressure relief valves that will allow the tank to breathe and prevent backpressure. For additional safety, MARVAC provides a wide range of tank protection products, including Tank blanketing valves to reduce harmful fugitive emissions and manways to facilitate inspections. AMAL deflagration and detonation flame arresters can be installed on the tank roof to prevent the propagation of fire into the system.
