The Protectoseal Series No. 830 Combination Conservation Vent and Flame Arrester is designed to provide pressure and vacuum relief to maintain tank’s vapor space within safe operating parameters. Vent settings minimize loss of product. Under pressure venting conditions, tank vapors are expelled to atmos- phere. Also serves as an End-of-Line Flame Arrester to protect tank’s vapor space from external sources of ignition.
Pallets in vent housing minimize air and vapor loss as the tank “breathes”. They open and close just enough to maintain safe working pressures and avoid damage to the tank. An integral flame arrester protects tank contents against fire and explosion caused by exterior sources of ignition. Rectangular plate-type flame arrester element(s) are mounted external to pallet assem- blies for ease of use and are only exposed to vapors when venting.
Guided pallet assemblies insure proper alignment on the seat and smooth lifting and reseating action.
Optimized Performance Vents™
Protectoseal’s “Optimized Performance Vents” incorporate patented features that provide the optimum overall vent perform- ance with regard to sealing, set point, flow and resealing (blow down).
Fast Inspection, Easy Maintenance. “Swing bolt design” permits removal of the vent housing cover and/or weatherhood(s) for easy, convenient handling for inspection and maintenance.
Maintains Accurate Pressure Settings. Set points are accurate to within +/- 3% across the entire range of available settings. Units may be weight loaded for use on installations requiring higher settings.
Air-Cushioned Seating. A flat, smooth diaphragm of FEP film is supported on both sides of an annular channel to form a floating air seal with the seat. An outer support rim assures proper seating.
Automatic Condensate Drainage. Vertically mounted, rectangu- lar plate-type flame arrester is employed for self-drainage of con- densate. Grids are mounted externally and are only exposed to vapors when venting.
Low-Leakage. Vent leakage is no more than 1 SCFH at 90% of the set pressure.
Positive Flame Arresting. Correct air spacing between the indi- vidual plates is assured through a series of precision embossings on the face of each plate. Each plate is fabricated from heavy gauge metal to resist distortion during cleaning and reassembly.
Sizes Available. 2″ (DN 50), 3″ (DN 80), 4″ (DN 100), 6″ (DN
150), 8″ (DN 200) and 10″ (DN 250). Please refer to dimension chart on reverse for flange connection options.
Test Lab Listings. Approved by Factory Mutual Research (FM) in 2″, 3″, 4″, 6″ and 8″. Listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in 6″, 8″ and 10″. For arresters that meet ATEX Directive 94/9/EC and ISO Standard 16852, please refer to Series 830E.
