Explosion & Fire Protection

Fike launches Valvex Explosion Protection Passive Isolation Valve

The ValvEx passive explosion isolation valve is designed to prevent flame and pressure propagation through interconnected pipes, ducts or conveying lines.
Explosion Protection
Fike Corporation announced the addition of a new ValveEx passive isolation explosion protection solution for dust aspiration and dilute-phase pneumatic conveyance systems to its line of products. The passive explosion isolation valve is designed to prevent flame and pressure propagation through interconnected pipes, ducts or conveying lines to additional process equipment or operating locations.

Explosion Control in Elevators

Vertical Conveying
Conveying systems for bulk solids are often at risk of explosions. as it is almost impossible to avoid this risk, there have to be technical installations which reduce the outcome of such an event. One of the most effective anti-explosion systems for vertical conveyors is an explosion suppression system.

Ultra-fast Detection Sensors

Cerex detector also recognises static pressures and therefore also reacts to explosions which progress very slowly.
Explosion Detection
The Fike Epaco system is a modular bus system based on a digital network technology. One main component of the Epaco system is the Cerex detector which recognises an increase in pressure long before explosion pressure is reached. The detector differentiates between increases in pressure which indicate explosions and normal process overpressures.
