The FOOG vent is designed to withstand side loads and shocks during filling and transit using a sintered plastic filter to guard against releasing fine powder. The Filtered outlet outgassing (FOOG) vent prevents over-pressurisation by releasing air during and after manufacturing processing.

Prevent Over-Pressurization

During the manufacturing process, products evolve from gases and vapours. Nitrogen gas is often emitted after processing if used for blanketing purposes to eliminate moisture and humidity and inhibit oxygen. The vent can prevent overpressure caused by the gassing of a product during and after processing.

The vent can be directly mounted into gas tap flanges or bulkhead mounted with an adaptor flange to protect packaging, such as storage bags containing milk powder and food aggregates. FOOG Vents are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved and manufactured from certified materials for use and contact with food products and can be sterilised for re-use.

  • Prevents over pressurisation and helps to out-gas a product during and after processing
  • Applicable bulk bags, any flexible storage and products that release gas while in an air-tight environment
  • Low cost and effective solution
