High Velocity Pressure Vacuum Relief Valve

  • High Velocity Pressure Vacuum Relief Valve

ERGIL's innovative High-Velocity Pressure Vacuum Valve ( also called High-Speed Pressure Vacuum Relief Vent or PVV), Model Number 170 is a safety device that reduces evaporation in cargo tanks. It is designed to prevent over and under pressure in the tank atmosphere. Thus, when air pressure exceeds the preset setting of pressure vacuum vent, the pallets open, depart the seal between the seal and pallet, and expel any excessive positive pressure. Moreover, they are typically mounted to a flange or pipe, which connects the vapor space of a cargo tank. In this respect, Ventil can be set to your specifications so that the pallet assemblies in the housings open when specific pressure and vacuum levels are reached. ERGIL cargo vents works auotomatically. As oppose to open tank free venting system, it controls the cargo tank venting system.

ERGIL Storagetech High-Velocity Pressure Vacuum Valves are designed specifically for tough offshore conditions. Valve body and internals are made of completely stainless steel ss 316 material that minimizes the corrosion effect. Highly technical design helps smooth functioning during sailing. Specially design loaded magnet design keeps the set pressure at required setting and opens immediately releases the vapor high above the ship surface. This jet releasing mechanism avoid any vapor collection on the surface of the ship and create a safe operation. ERGIL Storagetech High-Velocity PVV can safely operate up to -25ºC and manual lifting handle help to break the ice on both pressure and vacuum sides.


ERGIL's High-Velocity Pressure Vacuum Valve product is equipped with manual icebreaker arm devices both on the vacuum side and on the pressure side. This manual ice crusher system is designed for more efficient operation of the system for the regions where the weather is moving in the direction from opposite to normal conditions. By creating a magnetic field and using this magnetic force, makes the magnet a very important detail in our system.

In this design, we planned to use the ring magnet to provide both continuities and to prevent magnetic failure. We have designed and manufactured the general part of our product exterior and interior parts from AISI 316 material. The reason we use this material is that both our humid sea environment and sea/ocean water are affected and the effect of corrosion is reduced, thus providing the utilities we want and our long service in overseas travels.

• Storagetech PVV Model 170 High-Velocity Pressure Vacuum Valve prevents evaporation losses.

• The pressure/vacuum relief valve is the automatic gas-freeing high-speed valve of non-hammering non-oscillating type which ensures gas emission velocity with the vacuum valve equipped with flame screen;

• The high-speed valve provides automatic pressure control during cargo loading and during passage for changes caused by thermal variations;

•  The vacuum valve provides automatic vacuum control during cargo discharge and during passage for changes caused by thermal variations;

*   Protects environment. High-Velocity PVV prevents greenhouse gasses from mixing the atmosphere and minimizes the product odors around the surrounding area.

• High-Velocity PVV provides safety for your storage facility. High-Velocity PVV protects your storage tank from explosions that are caused by sudden pressure and vacuum change.

Designed to prevent passage of flames into tank carrying oil & chemical

High-Velocity Pressure/Vacuum Valve provides active protection against fire and explosion on deck.

2_NEW IMO Regulation for Product & Chemical carriers, MSC.1/Circ,1324

1-The Maritime Safety Committee approved the following amendments to MSC/Circ.677:

A-Paragraph 1.2.3 is replaced with the following

*1.2.3 These Standards are intended for devices protecting cargo tanks containing crude oil, petroleum products, and flammable chemicals. In the case of the carriage of chemicals, the test media referred to in section 3 can be used for products having an MESG of 0.9 mm and greater. However, devices for chemical tankers certified for the carriage of products with an MESG* less than 0.9 mm should be tested with the following media based on the apparatus group assigned as per column "i" of the IBC Code, chapter 17:

1. Apparatus Group II B - ethylene (MESG = 0.65 mm); and

2.Apparatus Group II C - hydrogen (MESG = 0.28 mm).

Where no apparatus group is assigned in the column "i", the device should be tested in accordance with the requirements for Apparatus Group II B.
