Crankcase Explosion Relief Valve

The MX series of crankcase explosion relief valves have a long established track record of service in providing venting of excess pressure within the crankcase. This range of valves incorporates an internal oil wetted wire gauze flame trap which has been proved to be the most effective method. This is combined with a spring loaded stemless relief valve, with a Nitrile seal which ensures frictionless valve operation.

These crankcase explosion relief valves are available in six different sizes and are set to operate between 0.08 and 4.5kg/cm opening pressure, other ranges can be specially engineered. To enable these crankcase explosion relief valves to be fitted to a wide range of engine sizes various valve sizes are available in order to safely vent any size of crankcase. Additionally the variation in the depth of the flametrap will accommodate most mechanical differences within the crankcase housing to prevent contact with any internal moving parts. To complete the assembly a specially designed cover is fitted which enables safe directional control of the issuing gases. These crankcase explosion relief valves are available in a range of sizes from 80mm up to 300mm.
