Application: Safety relief plug with a fusible metal and related devices and methods (Patent ID: US20230392702A1)

The patent filed by Entegris Inc. describes pressure relief devices and associated equipment, such as containers, that utilize a fusible metal component to provide pressure relief to pressurized fluids within the container when the metal reaches a melting temperature. The plug described in the patent comprises a plug body with a flow path containing a fusible metal body that melts within a specific temperature range, allowing the flow path to open. The coating on the metal body facilitates the flow of the melted metal, which can include metals like bismuth, tin, lead, or cadmium, and has a thickness ranging from 100 angstroms to 2 microns.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims related to pressure relief devices and containers incorporating the described plug, with the plug engaging the container at various pressure-relief devices like valves, conduits, connectors, and regulators. The coating on the metal body can be exposed to the container interior, and the container may contain additional compounds like organometallic compounds or metal amides. The patent also outlines a method for preparing the plug, involving the deposition of coatings such as metal oxides, metals, or fluoropolymers using techniques like chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, or electrodeposition. Overall, the patent focuses on innovative pressure relief mechanisms using fusible metal components and coatings to ensure efficient operation in various container applications.
