CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, U.S. — REMBE’s new and improved EXKOP isolation system is now available for more applications such as ST 2 dusts, reduced explosion pressures of to two bar and larger diameters.

“Isolation is essential to protect adjoining system components against the spread of combustible dust explosions,” Rembe said. “Tanks, silos, dust collection and other equipment are usually connected by pipelines through which, if an explosion occurs, fire and pressure spread very rapidly. In addition, the intensity of the explosion in connected containers is increased by pressure piling and flame jet ignition.”

This sequence of events can be prevented by the REMBE EXKOP isolation system, consisting of a control panel and one or more quench valves. The integrated elastomer seal within the quench valve closes within a few milliseconds,  triggered by a signal from a REMBE Explosion Panel,  a REMBE Q-Rohr, REMBE Q-Box , an infra-red signal or  pressure/ temperature sensors. 

The quench valve can be safely put back into operation again at the press of a button. The REMBE EXKOP system is fail-safe and easy to test/reset.

Whether it’s food, pharmaceutical, chemical, wood or metal dust, the EXKOP System keeps dust explosions safely in check.
