Date: Apr 08, 2014

Oseco’s MV-RD is the explosion vent manufacturers depend on to protect lives and equipment when handling explosive dusts, in high-cycling or high vacuum application.

The MV-RD is manufactured with a dome design to withstand high-cycling applications and with vacuums of up to 12 psig. Such characteristics reduce maintenance needs and increase the vent’s service life.  The MV-RD is available in a variety of sizes and specifications, and is designed to meet NFPA 68 requirements.  Hinged on one side, the MV-RD is also a non-fragmenting vent and is used onstorage bins, dust collectors, bag houses or any vessel involved with the storage, collection or conveyance of explosive dust.

“Ignition of small particles is a major safety hazard in an industrial facility, especially when those particles are contained in an enclosed vessel,” explained Shawn McCorkle, Oseco’s Engineered Solutions Manager. “In the event of deflagration, our MV-RD explosion vent will open instantaneously to relieve pressure safely, thereby saving lives and protecting equipment from explosion.”
Common sizes of the MV-RD are available with an industry best 2-day lead time through Oseco’s Explosion Vent Stocking Program
Oseco will be featuring the MV-RD vent at the 2014 International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference and Exhibition, booth 2807, May 6-8 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
