High pressure relief valves and deflagration / detonation flame arresters

AMAL and MARSTON protect mines and people from the risks associated with the extraction and transportation of flammable gases. BIRKETT, BAILEY and MARVAC offer reliable pressure relief from overpressure in pipes, tanks and silos.

Safer mining

Mining primarily involves the extraction of minerals, such as coal, petroleum and gas from the earth. Due to the presence of methane and other flammable gases, explosion protection devices are a key element to the mining process. Several mines also use cement and fly-ash silos that require pressure relief measures to avoid pressure building up, causing explosions and material spillage.

AMAL Flame arresters prevent the propagation of flames should an accidental ignition of flammable gases occur, preventing the flame from travelling below ground, where it could cause serious damage to equipment and people. Marston explosion vent panels offer instant pressure relief and protect against coal dust explosions, while safety relief valves from BAILEY, BIRKETT and MARVAC can relieve pipes from excess pressure in a variety of mining applications and protect tanks and silos from the effects of changes in atmospheric pressures.
