Emerson Releases New Bulk Storage Tank Relief Valve for Propane Tank Applications
Press release date: April 11, 2014
Fisher® Type 63EGLP Bulk Storage Relief Valve eases installation and reduces maintenance costs
McKINNEY, TEXAS — Emerson Process Management has released the new Fisher Type 63EGLP Bulk Storage Tank Relief Valve, typically used on 30,000 gallon and larger propane tank applications. The Type 63EGLP offers multiple benefits over traditional multiport relief valves, including a 40% increase in relief capacity, a 20% weight reduction for easier installation, and reduced maintenance costs. The UL-certified relief valve is approved for bulk propane storage relief installations compliant with NFPA 58.
The Type 63EGLP achieves significantly greater relief capacity than a traditional multiport relief by incorporating a highly accurate pilot controlling valve. This pilot controlling valve has been used for decades in petrochemical and natural gas applications and has proven to be both accurate and highly reliable. The 40% capacity increase translates into significant savings for tanks of 90,000 gallons or larger, requiring only two Fisher Type 63EGLP's versus three traditional multiport relief valves. Installation is simplified due to a 20% reduction in weight and a reduction in overall size in comparison to multiport relief valves, along with an included lifting sling.
The Type 63EGLP’s unique dual-pilot design provides high accuracy relief and the ability to service one pilot while the other pilot controls the relief valve for uninterrupted relief protection, helping to minimize maintenance time and costs
With an increased capacity, ease of installation, reduced maintenance costs, and a history of decades of accurate, dependable service in the petrochemical industry, the 63EGLP provides great value to the propane industry.
