High pressure relief valves, deflagration flame arresters and low pressure tank protection

BIRKETT, MARVAC and MARSTON provide adequate ventilation and effective pressure relief in biofuel processing facilities. AMAL Flame arresters prevent the propagation of flames and reduce the risk of fires and explosions.

Reducing risks in hazardous environments

The conversion of biomass into fuels carries a number of safety risks as it involves processing highly flammable chemicals, such as methanol and sodium hydroxide. Insufficient ventilation, ineffective pressure relief and inadequate fire safety measures can have catastrophic consequences in this industry and operators are required to take extra precaution when it comes to handling, storing and processing biofuels to ensure a safe operation.

AMAL Flame arresters can be installed in the vent of the fuel tank to protect pipes and storage tanks against accidental ignition of flammable gases and vapours. BIRKETT Safety relief valves prevent the build up of excess pressure, while MARSTON bursting discs and explosion vent panels supply processing systems and storage tanks with an additional relief capacity. MARVAC low pressure tank protection solutions allow the tank to breathe to prevent spillage and the emission of harmful vapours.

BIRKETT safety relief / pressure relief valves

BIRKETT safety relief / pressure relief valves prevent pressure build up in pumps, pipes and tanks.

The Birkett Range includes:

MARVAC low pressure tank protection

MARVAC low pressure tank protection products protect tanks and pipes from damage due to excessive pressure and reduce the risk of harmful emissions. 

The Marvac range includes:

AMAL in line & end of line deflagration / detonation flame arresters

AMAL in line & end of line deflagration / detonation flame arresters prevent flames escaping from pipelines if material being carried is ignited. Products include:

MARSTON bursting / rupture discs and explosion vent panels

MARSTON bursting / rupture discs and explosion vent panels provide instantaneous pressure relief and minimise the effects of explosions.

The Marston range includes:
