Advisory for 13 gal Pressurized Portables
February 04, 2014

Encon has determined that the original 125 psi pressure relief valve on the models listed below that were sold from August 1, 2012 to January 13, 2014, should be replaced with a new 110 psi pressure relief valve.

 

AFFECTED UNITS:

01103002 – 13 gal, socket mount for eye & body drenching

01103004 – 13 gal, heated, socket mount eye & body drenching, 120 VAC

01103005 – 13 gal, heated, socket mount eye & body drenching, 12 VDC

01103006 – 13 gal, heated, socket mount eye & body drenching, C1D2GpCD-120 VAC

01103007 – 13 gal, fixed eyewash

01104002 – 13 gal, eyewash and drench hose

01101002 – 13 gal, drench hose

01102002 – 13 gal, socket mount drench hose

01102004 – 13 gal, heated, socket mount drench hose, 120VAC

 

ISSUE:

The new ASME tanks are rated for 119 psi. The shipped relief valves are set for 125 psi.

 

REQUIRED ACTION FOR USERS:

Upon request, Encon Safety Products will ship a replacement valve that opens at 110 psi. Included instructions will show how to remove the old valve and replace it with the new one.

 

VERIFICATION:

To verify if the unit has the 125 psi relief valve, check the max working pressure (MAWP) stamp located near the bottom of the tank.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there is an ASME stamp or the max working pressure is 119 psi, the relief valve will need to be replaced.

On heated units, the insulation on the base will need to be peeled back to see the stamp.

 

Please call Encon Safety Products Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-283-6266 to place your request for a new relief valve.
