Emerson introduces wirelessly-monitored storage tank safety valves

Emerson Process Management has introduced the Enardo 850/950 series of wirelessly-monitored pressure vacuum relief valves (PVRVs) that provide safety and emissions control by managing the pressure in storage tanks in the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

The pressure in storage tanks often fluctuates. A PVRV opens and closes in response to these pressure fluctuations to ensure that safe pressure levels are maintained, but PVRVs are located on the top of storage tanks, so they can be hard to monitor. Emerson’s new wireless solution enables immediate response to prevent problems related to safety, emissions, and the quality of a tank’s content.

“Until now, PVRVs have remained unmonitored, with no feedback loops commonly seen in other pressure control devices. As the tank’s primary pressure control device, this wirelessly-monitored solution can be invaluable,” said Steve Attri, Product Manager for Emerson Process Management.
