The (5 &1) FŪZ-VENT™ was designed to be used for multiple functions including a wide Filling Port, Fusible Safety Vent, Mechanical Pressure Relief Vent, Automatic Pressure Relief Valve or an Automatic Vacuum Relief Valve to meet customer’s needs and uses.
(5 & 1) FŪZ-VENT™ is reusable and easy to clean. When the time comes to clean or fill a tank, simply unscrew the black HDPE ring- wash it, and put it back in. The design meets and exceeds DOT/UN packaging specifications for the transportation of hazardous materials.
This (5 &1) FŪZ-VENT™ has all the same characteristics, functions, features, and benefits as the standard AMI ( 3 &1) FŪZ-VENT™ with the additional design of incorporating and enabling it to be use with automatic pressure or vacuum relief valves.
FŪZ-VENT™is the ONLY true (3 in 1) multi-functional fusible vent to be used as - a Filling port, Fuzible Safety Vent, and Mechanical Pressure Relief Vent. It is easy to install and can be simply tightened by hand and then torqued to 15-20 ft/lbs. AMI offers a tool specifically designed to be used with FUZ-VENT™ for torqueing to make quick work of this task.
The (5 &1) design incorporates a threaded opening within the center of the FŪZ-VENT™ thus allowing for incorporating various types of mechanical / automatic valves through the center of the FŪZ-VENT™.
FUNCTION 4 - Pressure Relief Valve A mechanical valve opens when pressure inside the tank builds to a preset level.
FUNCTION 5 - Vacuum Valve The valve opens when the outside pressure exceeds that inside the tank by a preset amount.
The (5&1) FUZ-VENT™ is designed to fit well below the tank's stacking ears to shield against impact and damage providing a low, safe profile.
The innovative FŪZ-VENT™ pays for itself after only a few tank content turn-rounds. When it becomes necessary to clean or fill the tank just unscrew the black HDPE fusible vent, wash it and put it back into tank. This FŪZ-VENT™product replaces many expensive type of fusibles that get bent, torn, cross threaded or thrown away and then need replacement with each filling or cleaning.
All Intermediate Bulk Containers are required to have a Fusible Vent to meet DOT/UN regulations. The unique (5 & 1) FŪZ-VENT™patented design meets and exceeds DOT/UN packaging specifications for the transportation of hazardous materials.
The reliable FUZ-VENT™ is the ONLY true (5 in 1)
multi-functional fusible vent offering the following
advantages and benefits:
FŪZ-VENT™ is a registered trademark of American Machining Inc.
(A) Engineered HDPE Ring.
The innovated ring is responsible for providing all five functions. It is black HDPE to withstand exposure to UV light, most solvents, and other chemicals. Certified to meet DOT/UN standards.
(B) Stainless Steel Flange.
A stainless steel 3” NPS flange resists chemical attack and the rigor of use. HDPE-to-stainless contact means no thread galling. The ss flange is an option that can be welded to tote or tank.
(C) Molded Gasket.
The two patented vent ports are well above the threads so that the tank will begin venting any built up pressure within a quarter turn. Venting occurs away from the operator's face and prevents the device from popping like a champagne cork.
Buying separate gaskets and keeping track of them are unnecessary because one gasket is provided. (optional EPDM gasket is available for pressures above 15 PSIG)
AMI PN #111814
(D) Smooth Surface.
The precision-machined stainless steel flange has a very smooth finish to allow for proper surface mating between FŪZ-VENT™gasket and ss flange thus creating a tight seal.
(E) A Flush Fit.
The flange is machined to match the gage of the tank's lid and fit flush with the underside. The flush fit eliminates a solids collection point and eliminates cleaning headaches.
(F) Low, Safe Profile.
The design is well below the tank's stacking ears to shield against impact .or damage
(G) Torque Tool (optional)
AMI offers a tool specifically designed to be used with FUZ-VENT™ for torqueing to make quick work of this task.
