Pressure Protection

Elmac Technologies’ Low-Pressure Protection Equipment is designed to protect tanks from rupture or implosion during filling and/or emptying cycles. Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valves limit product loss and environmental discharges whilst also protecting tanks during thermal changes. Adequate pressure protection is required to stop the catastrophic failure of a tank or vessel.

We are committed to developing world-leading Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valves, and associated safety equipment, that provides ultimate protection in low pressure process environments.

In a further boost to the range of quality products offered, Elmac Technologies was acquired by Protectoseal in 2022. The acquisition has enabled us to extend our range of Pressure Protection products and Flame Arresters while reducing lead times in order to meet the growing global demand for our products.

The filling and emptying cycles of tanks and vessels causes change to the liquid volume and vapour space, and this together with fluctuating operating temperatures and pressures, result in the need for pressure protection equipment. Situations where a tank or vessel may be vulnerable to engulfment by fire could result in the need for large volumes of vapour to be rapidly vented in order to protect the tank and its environment. Safety devices, such as high level alarms or control systems, can malfunction, leading to catastrophic failure of the tank. This can result in critical injuries, loss of product and severe environmental damage. Accordingly, fail-safe devices, such as Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valves, Emergency Relief Vents, and/or other venting relief devices such as Bursting Discs should be fitted in addition to Flame Arresters where these may be required.
