Ylipainesuojaus – Alipainesuojaus – Murtokalvot – Hengitysventtiilit

Painevarolaitteet – mitoitus, optimointi ja toimitus

Laitteiden ja prosessien turvallinen suojaus ylipaineelta ja alipaineelta on vastuullinen tehtävä, joka oikein tehtynä voi pelastaa ihmishenkiä ja suojella ympäristöä. Haluamme tässä kirjeessä tiedottaa niistä varolaitetuotteista ja -palveluista, joita Thurne Teknik tarjoaa pohjoismaiselle teollisuudelle. Varolaitetuotteiden laitevalmistajamme ovat Continental Disc Corporation, Mersen ja Groth.

 

Mitoitus- ja kartoituspalvelut murtokalvojen varaston pienentämistä varten

Moni asiakkaamme käyttää hyvin monta eri murtokalvotyyppiä prosesseissaan. Monet erilaiset murtokalvotyypit varastoissa sitovat paljon rahaa ja varastotilaa. Tarjoamme palvelun, jossa tarkastamme eri käyttökohteissa tarvittavat murtopaineet, halkaisijat ja käyttölämpötilat asiakkaamme kanssa ja teemme optimointiehdotuksen. Vähennä eri murtokalvotyyppien määrää ja säästä rahaa.

HPX mallisto – tarkka murtopaine ja pitkäaikaisen painevaihtelun kesto

Kupera puoli prosessipuolella, eli ”reverse acting” murtolevy, antaa erittäin tarkan murtopaineen. Täten painelaitteiden paineluokitusta ei tarvitse ylimitoittaa turhaan, vaan prosessia voi turvallisesti ajaa hyvin lähellä suurinta sallittua painetta.

HPX mallilla on muotoilunsa ansiosta maailmanennätys painesyklien todistetussa kestossa ilman että metalli väsyy. Testeillä on todistettu että HPX kalvomalli kestää yli 250.000 vakuumi-/painesykliä.

 

Hygieniset prosessit – murtokalvon asennus suoraan Tri-Clamp -laippojen väliin
Hygieninen Sanitrx –murtolevy on optimoitu elintarvike-, pharma-, hienokemiaja bioteollisuuden tarpeisiin. Siinä ei ole erillistä murtokalvopidikettä.

– Lääke- ja elintarviketeollisuuden laitteisiin
– Helppo tarkastus ja vaihto ilman työkaluja, asennus Tri-Clamp laippojen väliin
– Suunnittelumurtopaine: 0,69 bar –34 bar
– Lääkkeen sekoitus- ja säilytysastioihin, elintarvike- ja juomasäiliöihin

 

Korrodoivat prosessit – laaja materiaalivalikoima hyvin happamiin prosesseihin
Grafiitti-, tantaali-, tai fluoropolymeripäällystetyt murtolevyt kestävät vuodesta toiseen hyvinkin syövyttävissä olosuhteissa. Kokeile esimerkiksi Mersenin grafiittimurtolevyjä, jotka
eivät vaadi erillistä murtolevypidikettä, vaan ne asennetaan pulttilaippojen väliin.

– Tantaali kestää kaikkia laimeita ja vahvoja happoja, paitsi fluorivetyhappoa
– Grafiitti, joka on inertti lähes kaikissa prosesseissa, sopii myös kuumiin kohteisiin
– Hastelloy, Monel, Inconel ja nikkeli sopivat tiettyihin prosesseihin optimaalisesti

 

Varoventtiili ja sitä suojaava murtolevy on tehokas ja turvallinen yhdistelmä
Varoventtiilien ja murtolevyjen käyttö yhdessä, toisiaan täydentävinä varolaitteina, on yleistynyt teollisuudessa.

– Kun murtolevy asennetaan varoventtiilin prosessipuolelle, venttiili on suojassa lialta ja syövyttäviltä kemikaaleilta. Näin varmistetaan että venttiili on kunnossa, kun sitä tarvitaan. Suojaus voi vaikuttaa jopa venttiilin materiaalin valintaan.
– Yhdistelmä pienentää kokonaispäästöjä painehäiriötapauksissa joissa murtolevy on murtunut, koska varoventtiili sulkeutuu paineen laskettua ja vuoto loppuu.

Hengittävät ylipaine- ja alipaineventtiilit – kompakti yhdistelmä
Ulkotiloissa olevien säiliöiden lämpötilan muutosten aiheuttama ”hengitystarve” on otettava huomioon. Käyttämällä hengittäviä venttiilejä vähennetään haitallisia päästöjä, verrattuna avoimesti hengittäviin tankkeihin. Samalla pienennetään haihtumisen kautta tapahtuvaa tuotehukkaa. Myös nesteiden pumppaamisen seurauksena säiliössä syntyvien mahdollisten alipaine- ja ylipainetilanteiden hallintaan, hengittävä venttiili on suositeltava ratkaisu.

Venttiilin lisävaruste – leimahtavan liekin tai räjähdyksen estäjä
Riippuen säiliössä olevan liuoksen leimahduspisteestä voidaan venttiilin lisäksi asentaa sen eteen myös liekinestin (esim salamoinnin aiheuttamien kipinöiden estämiseksi) tai räjähdyksenestin.
