58 LBS. – 285 LBS.

Safety latches provide venting that prevents implosion or explosion by relieving pressure once it reached a specified level, which is indicated in pounds of force. Pressure release latches are used by a range of industries and applications involving potentially explosive gas, dust or mist and can be used in vacuum applications or on the interior or exterior of a vessel. Safety latches can also be combined for use on doors for rigidity, product testing and pressure applications.
