Pressure/Vacuum Valve & Flame Arrester (Pipe-Away)

Model 8820A

Pressure/Vacuum Valve & Flame Arrester (Pipe-Away)

The Model 8820A combination units are used for pressure and vacuum relief where vapors must be piped away. They are designed to protect your tank from damage created by overpressure or excessive vacuum, at the same time that they provide protection from externally caused sources of heat and ignition. The result is reduced emissions level and increased fire protection and safety.

The Groth model 8820A is a combination of the 1220A Pressure Vacuum Relief Valve and Groth Model 7618A Flame Arrester. The superior Buna-N seating diaphragms are standard on the valve to insure extra tight sealing to prevent sludge vapors escaping. Self draining housing body and drip rings protect seating surface from condensate and freezing.
