Passive Protection & Isolation
Production requirements have caused Process Engineers to find Protection Methods that limit the down time associated with Explosion Protection. Up to recently Protection Systems used Active Detection and/or Monitoring Systems to ensure the functionality of the Protection System. This caused process interruptions on a scheduled and unscheduled basis for system maintenance. With the New ATEX Explosion Valve and Standard Venting Methods the need for these process stoppages can be reduced with the unscheduled ones virtually eliminated. The systems can use Standard Frangible Vents, Flameless Vents or Explosion Doors based on the needs of the Process and Operation Procedures.
