Cause & Consequence
- Uncontrolled release of a flammable gas or liquid
Specific Incident Equipment
Electrically heated pressure control valve
Should the diaphragm within the PCV fail, the result is a release to atmosphere via a vent on the valve. The manufacturer’s guidance does not state that this is the case.
PCV’s on HC systems should be checked to ensure any vents are located to safe areas.
