Low pressure tank protection, safety relief valves and deflagration flame arresters

BIRKETT, MARVAC, MARSTON and AMAL Flame arresters regulate pressure in tanks and pipes, prevent harmful vapours from escaping and protect against explosions in the hazardous environments of biogas plants.

Regulating pressure in gas plants

Biogas plants process large quantities of toxic and highly flammable gases, such as methane and carbon monoxide, which pose increased fire and explosion hazards. They also contain some of the most aggressive chemicals, such as ammonium and hydrogen sulphide, which can cause damage to pipelines, tanks and valves.

In order to ensure the safe operation of a biogas plant, considerations include effective pressure relief, explosion protection and leakage prevention. BIRKETT Safety relief valves and MARVAC Vacuum breather valves are corrosion resistant and provide reliable pressure and vacuum relief for a range of gas and liquid applications. AMAL Flame arresters prevent the transmission of deflagration in case of an uncontrolled ignition.
