3.9 Lbs.-17 Lbs. Safety Release Latches

Safety release latches are used to vent explosions and require no electricity to operate, making them an ideal final line of deflagration defense. Pressure release latches function both mechanically and manually by releasing pressure once it reaches a specified point and are categorized based on pounds of pressure.

Use of safety latches is not limited to explosion venting. Many of our customers specify our latches for applications where reliable retention and release features, combined with shock absorption capabilities, are required. Brixon latches are designed to operate through tens of thousands of latch and release cycles under a variety of ever-changing positive, and/or negative pressure conditions.

Selecting a Safety Latch for Your Pressure Requirements

Selecting the correct release force set point for your pressure latch is determined by a calculation that converts PSI into pounds of force to determine the point of vessel release. Use our online calculator to help you determine which latch release is the correct choice for your application. Some of the other important factors you should consider when choosing a safety latch include:  
  • Volatility of the pressurized substance
  • Weight of the safety latch
  • Exposure to corrosive substances
  • Operating environment
It is important to know that National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Factory Mutual Global (FMG) both have different pressure setting requirements. 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. You should always choose the lowest practical setting to ensure safety and effective pressure control.
See our adjustments and latch selection technical data for additional information regarding the criteria for selecting your pressure latch. For additional safety information, please read our Warnings and Limitations for safety latches.
