Pentair Valves & Controls has designed a new range of pressure and vacuum relief valves, which is the first series to be completely compliant with the new API 2000 regulation.
The Anderson Greenwood 4000 Series is the first high-capacity, full lift valves range to be verified as fully compliant with the latest API 2000 standard. The seventh edition of this regulation covers normal and emergency vapour venting requirements for bulk liquid storage tanks.
The valves have been engineered to provide increased flow capacities – fully opening at 10% overpressure, protecting tanks from internal pressure fluctuations.
As a result, the new instruments allow maximum allowable working pressure and vacuum, filling and emptying tanks quicker and operating at higher pressures.
Stuart Brooks, Tank Protection Product Manager at Pentair, described, “With verified, 100% API 2000 compliance, customers can be fully confident that they are working with products that meet the latest standards.”
The Pembroke-based branch of Pentair tested the new series on a square-edge flange connection with a variety of coatings for protection from extreme temperatures and corrosive substances.
Pentair’s Valves & Controls business manufactures valves, actuators and controls for applications in the oil and gas, chemical, food and beverage and construction industries.
Pentair Valves & Controls will present its expanded portfolio of specialised products for the LNG industry at the World Gas Conference (WGC) 2015. Three products designed specifically for LNG applications have been added to the company’s comprehensive offering for this market.
Pentair Valves & Controls is expanding its Anderson Greenwood pressure relief product range with the launch of an improved design of its pilot-operated pressure relief valve (POPRV) model for LNG storage in on- and offshore applications.
