Breather Valves which are also known as direct-acting vacuum/pressure relief valves are specially designed valves for protections of enclosed containers. There are various types of valves, including vacuum-only, pressure-only and combination of pressure and vacuum. They come with either flanged outlets or outlets vented to the atmosphere.
The breather valves are commonly used in bulk enclosed containers and tanks to minimize evaporation loss. They prevent excessive vacuum or pressure build-up within the container. The primary purpose of this valve is to protect the container against rupture or damage.
The installation of these valves within the tanks prevents system unbalance and damage to the container. There are springs or weight pallets fitted in these pressure valves that control levels of vacuum and pressure. In most of the valves, they are made up of spring and pallet systems. The spring section is for pressure settings, and the pallet is for adjusting vacuum settings.
Streampeak offers a wide range of breather valves for different types of enclosed systems. They serve various purposes while their primary function is to ensure protection against damage and rapture. These valves release the air pockets and prevent permanent physical damage or deformation of the large capacity storage container.
Our engineers can help guide in selecting the right type of breather valves according to container size and other requirements.
