Metal Explosion Vents

Oseco offers a two-day lead time on its stocked MV explosion vents. Among these, the MV-RD offers the ability to withstand high vacuums and is backed by a two-year warranty.

Each explosion vent in the MV family is designed to comply with the requirements of NFPA 68 and is calibrated to open at a predetermined pressure in the event of a deflagration. This allows the vessel to maintain its integrity while the pressure is relieved safely through the vent.

The MV family features five metal explosion vents, each designed for a specific application: the MV-RD is of rectangular, domed construction, and ideally suited for high vacuum applications like dust collection and bag houses; the MV-RF is a rectangular, flat explosion vent designed for light to moderate pressures and vacuums; the MV-CD is a domed vent designed for use in round duct work and can be rated to withstand full vacuum; the MV-CF is a flat vent that can be used in round duct work where light or no vacuum resistance is required; the MV-BE is designed exclusively for use on conveying/bucket elevator applications where high vibration conditions may exist. This explosion vent is composed of thicker, more durable materials than competing designs, making it resistant to vibration fatigue and providing a longer service life.
