LDPE (low-density polyethylene)

Pressure relief valves and deflagration / detonation flame arresters

BIRKETT, MARVAC and MARSTON protect equipment in LDPE plants from overpressure and AMAL Flame arresters prevent fire propagation and the accidental ignition of gases.

Safety in LDPE processing plants

The industrial fabrication of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) involves the high pressure polymerization of ethylene. Highly sensitive to pressure and temperature changes, this process requires fast and reliable pressure relief to ensure product quality and plant safety.

BIRKETT Safety relief valves protect against overpressure in pipe, tanks and vessels, while Marston bursting / rupture discs provide immediate pressure relief in a number of LDPE process applications. MARVAC pilot operated relief valves provide accurate pressure relief when operating near the limits of the design pressure. Together with AMAL Flame arresters, these Safety Systems UK products ensure the safe operation of high pressure LDPE processing plants.
