Product Description

USA Industries' EZ Vent® Slip Blind is similar to a Paddle Blind, with one major difference. Typical paddle blinds block flow on both sides of your flange, which can lead to pressure or fluid building up on one side of the flange. This ventable blind allows you to block flow on one side of the blind while allowing access to relieve or purge the other side. This makes downstream work much safer in the event of a leaking valve upstream.

The EZ Vent Slip Blind (also referred to as a bleeder blind) is useful if there is not a valve on your piping at a location near where you're working. A ventable blind is the easiest way to verify that there is zero energy in the line, vent off any pressure that has leaked by upstream valves, or create an entry point for hydrotesting.

Note: USA Industries has started placing all NPTs 180° from the handle. Typical installation would have the handle pointing up, and the port draining down out the bottom. If you require custom placement of your NPT port from the handle you must specifically request it.
