10 Lbs. - 45 Lbs. Safety Release Latches

Safety latches are used by various industries to prevent explosions caused by a buildup of pressure and for push-to-open door applications, product testing and security. Release latches are set to release pressure once it reaches a specified level and are typically offered in categories based on pressure range. They can be used on the interior or exterior of a vessel as well as in implosion applications. Safety latches can also be used in multiples for use on doors to maintain a gasket seal across the entire surface.

Safety Latch Selection Based on Your Pressure Requirements

Our online calculator tool [link to new calculator] can help you determine which safety latch is best for your pressure release application. Some of the other important factors you should consider when choosing a safety latch include: 
  • Substance volatility
  • Vessel construction
  • Resistance to extreme temperatures or corrosion
  • Operating environment
  • Material weight
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Factory Mutual Global (FMG) each have different pressure setting requirements that you must adhere to for safety compliance. NFPA 68 Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting is a great starting point. Always refer to all applicable codes, and regulations pertaining to your specific situation and municipality. As a general rule of thumb, you should always choose the lowest practical setting to ensure safety and effective pressure control.
