Storage and Distribution

Vessels for storing and transporting gases and liquids can often experience changing pressure and vacuum conditions. To protect against overpressurisation within the storage and distribution of these substances, Elfab offers a range of rupture discs (bursting disc) solutions to suit its customer’s exact requirements.

The storage and transportation of bulk materials in particular inherently produces dusty conditions, posing a risk of explosion in pressurised vessels. Elfab’s explosion venting panels are designed to open at pre-determined burst pressures to protect against the severity of these explosions. The specific characteristics and construction of Elfab’s panel ranges ensures operational excellence even for demanding applications.

Elfab’s explosion vent range is available with the optional benefit of an integral burst detection system for instantaneous notification when panel has burst. Elfab’s unique ATEX-approved burst detection system, Vent-Tel, was specifically designed for its range of explosion venting panels to further ensure onsite safety for its customers. When connected to an intrinsically safe circuit this ExII 1GD EEx ia IIC detection device ensures a safe and compliant plat that fulfils the demanding regulatory developments within storage and distribution applications.
