Vent Valve


Being part of the proven KÜHME high-performance valve series for industrial applications, the valve type KEV is used in application area for which a quick and safe relief of gaseous media and fuels is required in between two safety shut-off devices. The electro-pneumatically controlled quick-opening valve sets standards in regards to service life and reliability even in the most demanding applications.

Nominal size:
DN 15 TO DN 25
Operating pressure:
MAX. 16,0 BAR G
Operating temperature:
max. + 180°C


  • Opening time < 1 second
  • High safety level through zero leakage
  • Heavy duty design for high amount of operating cycles
  • High-performance valve with a long service life
  • H2-ready


The quick-opening valve is piloted by means of the pneumatic actuator either with a separate solenoid control valve, or in parallel by the solenoid valve of the first automatic quick-closing valve within a safety shut-off valve combination (double block and bleed device).Automatic quick-opening is carried out by the installed spring force in less than 1 second and allows relief of the gas volume into the atmosphere. The valve cone with soft sealing element guarantees absolute tightness (leakage rate A in acc. with EN 12266-1).
