Minimum flow rate for a pressure-relief valve per MIL-DTL-27166 DETAIL SPECIFICATION: VALVE, PRESSURE EQUALIZING, GASEOUS PRODUCTS

  • The minimum flow rate to protect the container is 12% of the container’s internal volume per minute
  • The minimum flow rate shall be determined at a differential pressure of 1.5 psi (10.3 kPa) greater than the specified reseal pressure in the flow direction
  • The displaced volume of the material in the container may be subracted from the container volume. Do not subtract the volume of material that may be removed during shipping
