Explosion panel suitable for food and pharmaceutical applications

Uniquely designed explosion panel suitable for food and pharmaceutical applications

Dusty conditions commonly associated with the storage and handling of grains and powders can potentially lead to dangerous explosions. Within the food-processing, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors, ensuring that the explosion protection solution is also suitable for sanitary applications is an added consideration. The specially designed construction of Elfab’s Hygienic explosion venting panel maintains operational excellence within stringently sterile environments.

Cost-effective solution with a unique specification for sanitary explosion protection

The Hygienic Explosion Vent is a maintenance-free, non-torque dependent product ensuring ease and speed of installation. Its smooth finish and crevice-free design eliminates residue and bacteria build-up in situ.

Optional integral burst detection for immediate shut-down

The Hygienic Explosion Vent is available with the optional benefit of an integral burst detection system for instantaneous notification when panel has burst. Elfab’s unique ATEX-approved burst detection system, Vent-Tel, was specifically designed for its range of explosion venting panels to further ensure onsite safety for its customers.

When connected to an intrinsically safe circuit this ExII 1GD EEx ia IIC detection device ensures a safe and compliant plat that fulfils the demanding regulatory developments within the bulk handling industry. An EC-Type Examination Certificate ITS03 ATEX 11359 is available.






Operating on a simple reed switch and magnet technology, Vent-Tel is designed to offer a practical solution for explosion vent burst detection. The magnet is pulled away from the sensor in the event of a panel burst, giving an open circuit signal. It signals a burst within the installation and in turn, can trigger an immediate shut-down of the process. Only the panel itself has to be replaced after it functions, eliminating the need to hold stock of any additional detectors or order excessive spares.

The Hygienic Explosion Vent is manufactured in set burst pressures 0.05barg and 0.1barg in Stainless Steel as standard. Other burst pressures and materials may be available. Please contact us for more information.
