The VAREC 42 Series Hatch Covers are installed on tanks to provide access for gauging, temperature measurement or sampling. The Hatch Covers are provided with a lockdown device that allows for a gas-tight seal up to 3 psig [20.7 kPa]. For ease of use, the lockdown device includes an ergonomically friendly handwheel.
A padlock feature is incorporated to prevent unauthorized tank access through the hatch. In addition, the VAREC 42 Series Hatch Covers include a foot pedal to open the cover, enabling the operator free use of both hands while gauging or sampling the tank contents.
