Spring-Loaded Emergency Pressure Relief Vents


Protectoseal Series 54000 Spring Loaded Emergency Pressure Vents provide emergency pressure relief for storage tanks as well as access for tank cleaning, inspection and repair work. They are designed for installation on the manhole openings of tanks and provide a means of relieving large volumes of vapors, beyond the capacity of a normal operating vent, if an emergency fire involvement of the tank should occur.

Even tanks with high design ratings require protection from excessive pressure accumulation in their vapor space. With the set pressures allowed by a spring loaded design, the vents can remain closed at higher pressures and are allowed to open only when the tank structure may be in jeopardy. Vapors can then be relieved to maintain the tank within its design parameters.
