CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, US — REMBE Inc.’s VENTEX passive explosion isolation valve joins the company’s comprehensive product line for explosion protection.

The robust design of the VENTEX is certified to handle organic dusts, metal dusts, hybrid mixtures and gases with one-way or two-way acting systems.

The function of this passive isolation valve is very simple. During normal operation, air flows through the valve and passes around the poppet on the inside. During an explosion, the poppet is forced shut by the explosion pressure wave and locked into place. This creates a seal in the process line and effectively prevents the spread of flames and pressure. Additionally, there are signaling devices included on all valves to indicate an explosion has occurred.

VENTEX is part of REMBE’s explosion isolation devices that include the EXKOP system and the Q-Flap NX series inlet isolation device.
