(Image soure: ERGIL)ERGIL Storagetech, designer and manufacturer of storage tank equipment, has received ATEX directive 94/9/EC Certificate deflagration type end-of-line flame arresters series from two inch to eight inch which is approved to EN ISO 16852

This type of flame arrester is installed on low-pressure storage processing tanks, bleed tanks or other waste gas devices. Normally, they are installed on a vent nozzle mounted on a tank that is discharged directly into the atmosphere. They can also be incorporated as integral parts of conservation vents installed on atmospheric storage tanks containing flammable liquids.

“The gases produced by vaporisation of many flammable liquids have similar flame speeds when mixed with air. Typical of these are gasoline, jet fuel, benzene, plastics monomers and organic solvents. Often the pressure drop across the vent valve of a conservation vent is the 17mm of water or more. In this case, the velocity of the gas flow through the vent-valve opening will be higher than the speed at which the flame can propagate upstream through the opening,” said the company.

The new model end-of-line endurance burning flame arresters are equipped with a quick opening hood that automatically opens after certain time under continuous fire to release the gas freely without blocking or changing the direction.

ERGIL Storagetech operates accredited management systems to ensure that its flame arrester products are manufactured in accordance with international standards, and to maintain quality and materials traceability which leads to customer satisfaction and products that function safely.

These include ISO 9001:2008 – quality management systems, ISO 14001:2004 – environmental management systems and OHSAS 18001:2007 – manual for occupational health and safety system. Engineering standards in place include the ASME U-Stamp Boiler and Pressure Vessel Certification, CE marking and ATEX certification relating to Directive 94/9/EC – equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

ERGIL provides technologically advanced flame arresters and storage tank valves for oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, agro, water, waste water treatment and utility industries.
