Reduce temperature and energy

loss and maintain efficiency

The dusty conditions associated with the storage and handling of grains and powders can cause dangerous explosions. Applications that need to be maintained at a higher temperature have the additional complication of needing to retain that heat energy while still ensuring safety with explosion venting protection.

Our thermal explosion vent combines a solid thermal insulator of low-density silica within a stainless steel panel construction. The panel is therefore unaffected by condensation or product build-up, and as the insulation is integral to the panel there is no loss of efficiency.

Unlike other designs requiring the purchase of additional components, our thermal explosion vent is therefore a single-product solution. It ensures minimal space is required, which reduces on-going purchasing costs.

Suitable for temperatures up to 600°C, the thermal explosion vent is available in either a square, round or rectangular design with either flat or domed construction. Depending on the process temperature and conditions, it may be possible to use Vent-Tel, our ATEX-approved burst detection system for explosion panels, with the thermal explosion vent.
