Explosion Venting Latches for the Energy Storage Industry

Wind turbines and solar panels are an increasingly popular source of alternative energy worldwide. However, lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen housed in energy storage facilities create a high risk of fire or explosion. Failure to properly vent energy storage systems can lead to catastrophic events that put on-site workers and the surrounding community at risk.

Brixon’s explosion venting latches minimize these risks by creating a weathertight seal under normal operating conditions. When an explosion or implosion occurs, the latches automatically pop open the door or hatch to release the excess pressure. Installing pressure-release latches on exterior energy storage vessels is critical in maintaining compliance with fire and safety standards in the energy storage industry.

Stainless Steel Explosion Venting Latches for Solar Energy Storage

While Brixon carries explosion venting safety latches in various materials, we recommend stainless steel pressure-release latches for energy storage applications. This material withstands hot and cold environments and has a temperature threshold up to 650˚F (343˚C), allowing indoor and outdoor installation in virtually any climate.

Pressure-Release Safety Latches

Our safety latches come in release forces from 3.9 lbs up to 285 lbs. per latch for specific models. All stainless steel energy storage latches come standard with a plain investment cast finish. An electropolished, buffed, and passivated finish can be added for improved corrosion protection.

Security and Locking for Pressure-Release Latches

If security is a concern at your facility, we can provide energy storage explosion venting latches with a lock-out mechanism that prevents anyone from opening a door or cover. Brixon also offers an optional latch maintenance program for sites requiring regular safety and vent integrity testing.
