Pressure relief valves, vacuum breather valves and deflagration / detonation flame arresters

BIRKETT, MARVAC and AMAL protect critical applications in the plastics industry from overpressure, fire propagation and explosion.

Managing polymerisation processes

The production of plastics typically involves the process of polymerisation, a potentially hazardous chemical reaction that releases a large amount of heat. If the process is left uncontrolled it can build up enough pressure to cause fire or explosions, threatening plant and people.

BIRKETT Safety relief / pressure relief valves and MARVAC low pressure tank protection valves protect process equipment and storage tanks from excessive internal pressures. When fitted onto pipes and tanks, AMAL Flame arresters provide reliable protection against flame propagation and explosions.
