Girard Equipment has received 3-A approval (number 95-00 Transportation Tank Vents) for the SaniVent model of their IBC Vent/Fill Cap. Now called the SaniVent 3A, this option is catered towards companies that transport food or beverage products. The vent features a “clean out of place” (COP) method that allows users to remove, clean, and reinstall the vent in less than a minute.

The surfaces of the vent are electrochemically polished through super-passivation to provide added defense against corrosion. Design features allow for protection against unauthorized tampering of the payload.

To secure the 3A certification, Girard Equipment underwent a rigorous approval process that included the examination and analysis of the design and production of the vent. Adhering to these strict standards ensures that Girard’s customers receive a product that meets industry regulations and will be easy to clean, inspect, and maintain.
