REMBE’s VENTEX valve joins arsenal of explosive protection devices

news item image
REMBE’s VENTEX Passive Explosion Isolation Valve is a key product that fulfills many isolation applications.
For instance, the isolation of interconnected equipment is usually required by the National Fire Protection Association in ATEX environments.
The VENTEX valve comes in a very robust design that is certified to handle organic dust, metal dust, hybrid mixtures, and gases with one-way or two-way acting systems.
The function of this passive isolation valve is very simple - during normal operation, air flows through the valve and passes around the poppet on the inside.
During an explosion, the poppet is forced shut by the explosion pressure wave and locked into place. This creates a seal in the process line and effectively prevents the spread of flames and pressure.
Additionally, there are signalling devices included on all valves to indicate an explosion has occurred.
The VENTEX valve joins the already REMBE® arsenal of explosion isolation devices, including the REMBE® EXKOP® system and the Q-Flap NX series inlet isolation device.
REMBE manufactures products for explosion protection and pressure relief systems designed to protect production facilities and personnel against the dangers of combustible dust explosions.
For almost 40 years, REMBE Alliance has pioneered innovative technologies, such as the Q-Rohr®-3 Flameless Indoor Explosion Venting System, which are used throughout the manufacturing world to improve plant and personnel safety.
