Industrial Saddle Vent®  Confined Space Entry Ventilation Technique

The Saddle Vent Ventilation Technique For Confined Space Ventilation

The Saddle Vent® was invented by a professional tank cleaner to make it easy for his workers to enter and exit a confined space. The Saddle Vent® takes up only 3 inches in a manhole and functions as an air conduit. Eight inch air hose is attached to both ends of The Saddle Vent® and placed in the entry access hole, thus eliminating the need to remove the hose each time entry or egress is required. The Saddle Vent® revolutionizes confined space operations by offering a level of safety and productivity that has never been available. One model is available for industrial manhole work, and a specific model is designed for doing tank entry work. The Saddle Vent's® unique air flow design does not reduce air flow to the worker.

Confined Space Entry Ventilation Setup

The Saddle Vent® ventilator provides continuous access to the manhole for either entry or egress. Traveling in and out of the confined space can now be done quickly and safely. The Saddle Vent® increases worker productivity as well as the ability to perform confined entry rescue. The entire Saddle Vent® system can be completely set up in less than five minutes. Eight inch air duct is installed on the bottom of The Saddle Vent® and run to the bottom of the manhole. This allows fresh air to be supplied to the workers and displace any harmful gases that may be deadly for the occupants. The use of the 90° elbow removes the severe kink in the air duct and allows for rotation of the intake duct to any desired position at the street level.
