Tank vent check valves or vent heads as they are more commonly known, are used on all ships in order to ventilate ballast and void tanks, while also preventing any contamination of the contents of the tank with water during rough seas. It is a requirement that all tanks aboard ships are protected from penetration of seawater in accordance with the International Convention on Load Lines 1966.
Winel tank vent check valves can be used on any type of commercially used ship, for yachts, navy vessels and offshore platforms. By using the Winel tank vent check valves you have the advantage of a solid, maintenance free and fully automatic operating system.
