KITO – Valves for Railway Tanker Applications

KITO – Valves for Railway Tanker Applications

A comprehensive selection of valves for safe pressure or vacuum relief in an ever increasing range of critical applications involving movable tanks such as railway tankers.

Deflagration and endurance burning proof pressure relief valve

KITO® DS/cont. 25

Application:

Endurance burning proof pressure relief valve for portable tanks (GGVSE/ADR, GGVSE/RID) for the transport of flammable liquids and gases with the exception of carbon disulphide. To prevent inadmissible tank pressure by warming or filling.
Approved for all substances of explosion group IIB3 with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) ≥ 0.65 mm.
An operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.

Pressure relief valves

KITO® DS/o cont. 25

Application:

Pressure relief valve for portable tanks for the transport of noninflammable liquids.
To prevent inadmissible tank pressure by warming or filling.
Not explosion proof.

KITO® DS/o cont 32

Application:

Pressure relief valve for portable tanks, especially for rail tank cars and road tank cars for the transport of sodium hypochlorite dilution (GGVSE class 8)

Uni-directional in-line detonation flame arrester

KITO® Rd/C-Det4-IIA-…-1,2

Application:

Detonation flame arrester for installation into pipes to protect containers and components against stable detonation of flammable liquids and gases.
Tested and approved as detonation flame arrester type 4.
Approved for all substances of explosion groups IIA1 to IIA with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) > 0.9 mm.
An operating pressure of 1.2 bar abs. and an operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.
Positioning should be as close as possible to the protected object; it is only allowed to connect pipes with the same or a smaller diameter than the diameter (G) of the device.
The installation of the detonation flame arrester into horizontal and vertical pipes is permissible.

Pressure relief device

KITO® DE/cont. 20

Application:

Endurance burning proof pressure relief device for portable tanks (GGVSE/ADR and GGVSE/RID) for the transport of flammable liquids and gases of explosion group IIB3 (MESG ≥ 0.65 mm) with exception of carbon disulphide. An operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.
For safe tank pressure relief to the atmosphere before opening of the tank caps or connected lines.
A pipe connection instead of the cap is not allowed.

Deflagration proof vacuum relief valve

KITO® VS/cont-IIB3

Application:

Explosion proof end-off-line vacuum relief valve for storage tanks, vessels and pipes to prevent inadmissible vacuum.
Approved for flammable liquids of explosion group IIB3 (MESG) ≥ 0.65 mm. An operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.
Suitable also for portable tanks for the transport of flammable liquids.

Vacuum relief valve

KITO® VS/o cont.

Application:

As end-of-line device, for venting of tank installations for ventilation and to prevent inadmissible vacuum.
Usually installed on top of a tank, if applicable in conjunction with a pressure relief valve on a common connecting pipe.
Valve is not explosion-proof, thus cannot be used for flammable media.

Deflagration proof vacuum relief valve

KITO® K/VG

Application:

Explosion proof end-of-line vacuum relief valve to prevent inadmissible vacuum.
Approved for flammable liquids and gases of explosion group IIA with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) > 0.9 mm. An operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.
Low height of construction, for portable tanks, preferably for rail tank cars and tank containers.
Equipped with a function control equipment for the valve pallet.
Upon request without KITO® flame arrester element available.
Valve is sealed.

Deflagration proof pressure and vacuum relief valve

KITO® K/DVE-IIB3-80

Application:

Explosion proof combined pressure/vacuum relief valve to prevent excessive pressure and vacuum.
Approved for flammable liquids and gases of explosion group IIB3 with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) > 0.65 mm. An operating temperature of 60°C must not be exceeded.
Low height of construction, for portable tanks, preferably for rail tank cars and tank containers.
Upon request without KITO® flame arrester element available.
Valve is sealed.

Pressure relief valve

KITO® K/DO

Application:

Pressure relief valve against excessive pressure in rail tank cars (RTC) for the transport of dangerous goods of cl. 3, 5.1, 5.2, 6.1 and 8 with special regulations (RID/GGVSE, dangerous goods V sea). If used in combination with a rupture disc broken disc will be indicated by a pressure gauge which is fitted to the ½” threaded connection between rupture disc and valve pallet.

Pressure and vacuum relief valve

KITO® K/CVO 80

Application:

Combined pressure / vacuum relief valve to prevent excessive pressure and vacuum in rail tank cars, low height of construction, for portable tanks, preferably for rail tank cars and tank containers.
