CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, U.S. — REMBE has introduced TARGO-VENT, which helps with explosion pressure relief.
The TARGO-VENT is an opening angle limiter for use with explosion panels, which guides the pressure relief specifically into areas in which there is no danger to the adjoining infrastructure.
TARGO-VENT absorbs the enormous repulsive forces of explosion energy and guides the flames and shock wave in the desired direction.
Depending on the particular application/equipment, the flames and shock wave are diverted at a defined angle of approximately 30° to 45° upwards or to the side so facility operators can minimize the safety areas around the vent opening. The usable area is increased.
A further advantage of TARGO-VENT: the top module is made in standard explosion panels sizes, so that it may be retrofit on existing REMBE explosion panels without a problem. Retrofits or building additions are protected by TARGO-VENT without the need to significantly alter the explosion protection plan of the existing facility.
TARGO-VENT is attached directly to the REMBE explosion panels — an additional space-saver. There is no need for expensive baseplates or reinforcement. The system is made of maintenance-free stainless steel materials and, in combination with REMBE explosion panels, is type-tested in accordance with the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 114), authorized in accordance with (FSA 13 ATEX 1637) and fully conforms to NFPA Standards.
