UB/VF Vacuum Diaphragm Valve

Brand: PROTEGO
The deflagration-proof UB/VF type Protego diaphragm valve is a state-of-the-art vacuum relief valve combining the function of a dynamic and static flame arrester.

It is primarily used as a safety device for flame transmission proof inbreathing on tanks, containers and process engineering apparatus.

The valve offers reliable protection against vacuum build up, prevents the inbreathing of air and product losses almost up to the set vacuum and protects against atmospheric deflagration.

The Protego UB/VF diaphragm valve has proven its performance over many years in a great variety of severe applications in the petrochemical and chemical industry.

Worldwide it is the only vent which functions in services such as styrene and acrylics.

The set vacuum is adjusted with a freeze resistant water-glycol mixture, which assures safe operation under extreme cold weather conditions.

The Protego UB/VF valve is available for substances from explosion group IIB3 (NEC group C MESG ≥0.65 mm).
Features
  • High performance seal reducing product loss below EPA's 500 ppm rule preventing environmental pollution
  • Set vacuum close to the design vacuum enables optimum pressure maintenance in the system
  • High flow capacity
  • Can be used as a protective system according to ATEX in areas subject to an explosion hazard
  • Protection against atmospheric deflagrations for products up to explosion group IIB3 (NEC group C MESG ≥0.65 mm)
  • Minimum pressure drop of the FLAMEFILTER
  • Freeze protection at sub-zero conditions
  • Self draining function for condensate
  • Liquid column height is monitored by level indicators
  • Easy maintenance through hinged vent cap
