REMBE®, INC. announces a new addition to its comprehensive combustible dust explosion isolation product line: the VENTEX Passive Explosion Isolation Valve. The VENTEX valve is designed for gas/dust/air mixtures, with one-way or two-way acting system options available as well as signaling options to meet specific application requirements. Protecting processes from the risks of combustible dust explosions, per NFPA standards, usually requires isolation of interconnected enclosures and conveying to contain an explosion. The pressure wave of an explosion pushes the VENTEX valve closing device against a seal, locking the valve and effectively preventing the spread of flames and pressure. The VENTEX valve joins the already robust REMBE® arsenal of explosion isolation devices, including the REMBE® EXKOP® system and the QFlapCompact II series inlet isolation device.
