Vents help food processing and agricultural facilities remain OSHA and NFPA compliant
Broken Arrow, Okla. (May 13, 2010) – Leading pressure relief manufacturer Oseco will feature its full line of explosion vents at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2010 Conference and Expo, June 7-10 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. Oseco’s explosion vents, including the new GLV-F, will be available for hands-on demonstration at the company’s booth, #1658.
The GLV-F explosion vent mounts where dust builds in conveyors and grain elevators. Should a deflagration occur, the vent opens up and releases pressure to minimize damage. An optional sensor is available, which detects when an explosion occurs and either shuts the system down or sounds an alarm to notify personnel. The GLV-F has a built-in outlet frame and gasket to ease installation, eliminating the need to fabricate an angle iron hold down frame. The product meets NFPA 61 standards for the prevention of explosions in agricultural and food processing facilities.
Oseco’s full line of explosion vents meets OSHA and NFPA 68 standards for venting explosions and deflagrations. Explosion vents are an accepted method of compliance with inspection guidelines outlined by the OSHA Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program.
