The Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valve

The KLPH Series High Velocity Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valve is designed for tank ship and tank barge vapor overpressure and vacuum protection, and to prevent passage of flame into cargo tanks on board oil and chemical carriers.

In addition, the high velocity at which tank overpressure is released, straight up and away from the deck area, protects vessel personnel from exposure to toxic and flammable gases.
