ValvEx Passive Explosion Isolation Solution
ValvEx® is an explosion isolation valve that prevents explosions from spreading through industrial installations; protecting critical assets, and most importantly, the people who operate them. ValvEx is a ‘passive’ valve, meaning it is closed by the explosion pressure itself.
ValvEx is third party tested and ATEX certified, making it effective for use in processes which involve combustible materials often found in chemical, pharmaceutical, power, food and wood industries. The Fike ValvEx is designed to prevent flame and pressure propagation through pipes, ducts or conveying lines to interconnected process equipment or operating locations.
Vents and passive isolation are the ideal solution
Venting is the most commonly used method to protect dust collectors against destruction or deformation as a result of the excessive forces exerted by explosion pressure.
ValvEx and venting form an ideal combination to protect dust collectors. Both ValvEx and vents are passive explosion protection solutions, meaning they do not require detection nor controls to fulfill their safety function.
Protect people and property
A dust deposit with the thickness of a paper clip is sufficient to support explosion propagation throughout a process. Help avoid the risks of a propagating dust explosion by contacting a Fike expert to discuss ValvEx and venting solutions for your business.
