EZ Vent® Slip Blind

Enhance downstream safety with our vented paddle blind - Available to Rent or Purchase.


Unlike typical paddle blinds that block flow on both sides, the EZ Vent bleeder blind allows you to block flow on one side while providing access to relieve or purge the other. This makes downstream work safer, especially in the case of a leaking upstream valve.

Also known as Vented Blind Flanges, Vent Blinds, Bleeder Blinds, and Ported Blinds, they are useful when there's no valve near your work location. It's the easiest way to confirm zero energy in the line, vent off leaked pressure from upstream valves, or create an entry point for hydrotesting.


  • Block one side of the flange while venting the other side.
  • Verify, and/or relieve line pressure.
  • Easy entry point for hydrotesting.
  • Testing point for hydrocarbons and other gases.
  • Multiple ports can be added; venting one or both sides.
  • Available in Ring Type Joint (RTJ), and with NPT or SW ports.
  • Blind can be rated. (with additional thickness for vent)
  • Available as a spectacle or paddle blind.
