Relief Manifold Developed by MEC Saves Time and Money

Imagine a stationary ASME tank that can be fully operational while maintenance is performed, without interrupting service or requiring the entire tank be emptied. Bergquist, Inc., the leader in wholesale propane equipment distribution, is pleased to announce that the dream is now a reality with the unveiling of the Mini Quad-Port Relief Valve Manifold from Marshall Excelsior Company (MEC) at the 2016 NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville (Booth 1327).

The Mini Quad-Port Relief Valve has all of the same features and benefits of MEC’s existing flanged versions, but costs less and doesn’t require costly tank modifications. This product is specifically designed to be utilized in all large ASME tanks equipped with standard 2”FNPT vapor relief valve openings. The Mini Quad-Port allows for the service and exchange of tank vapor relief valves while tank systems remain fully operational.

“Not only does this product from MEC make it easier to service a tank, it provides an opportunity to save drastically on cost,” said Don Heller, Vice President of Propane Technologies for Bergquist. “With the Mini Quad-Port Relief Valve Manifold, the tank does not need to be emptied every time service is required – saving money and eliminating waste. Instead, the product offers a way to provide service and keeps everything else functioning smoothly.”

The valve utilizes the New – High Flow 1-1/4”MNPT External Relief Valves and is available in brass for LPG service or aluminum for NH3 service. The manifolds and relief valves are available with either Viton or NBR seals for superior performance in either LPG or NH3 application. These relief manifolds have an additional relief valve excluded from the flow rating, which allows for service and or/exchange of any one relief valve without evacuating the tank.

MEC has been a progressive manufacturer of top quality LPG and NH3 equipment for over 30 years – leading the industry in innovation and low emission products. Bergquist is a primary supplier of MEC propane equipment and accessories here in the United States.
