Vacuum pressure in fermenters or bright tanks
« on: June 01, 2018, 08:46:08 PM »
Vacuum pressure occurs if your tank is poorly vented or the relief valve is malfuntioning. The pressure within your fermenter or bright tank will drop, causing a pressure differential between your tank's internal pressure and the atmospheric pressure. When that pressure differential becomes greater than the external pressure rating of the tank, the vessel will experience catastrophic failure.

Then how does vacuum failure happy, those activities include:
1. Pumping or draining an unvented tank
2. Overfilling a tank
3. Hot CIP followd by cold rinse
4. Using caustic soda after fermentation
