Minimize Damage with an Explosion Vent
Mon, 06/28/2010 - 12:02pm
Oseco introduces its GLV-F explosion vent that mounts where dust builds in conveyors and grain elevators. Should a deflagration occur, the vent opens up and releases pressure to minimize damage. These vents additionally grant:
- An optional sensor that detects when an explosion occurs, and either shuts the system down or sounds an alarm to notify personnel.
- A built-in outlet frame and gasket to ease installation.
- Compliance with NFPA 61 standards for the prevention of explosions in agricultural and food-processing facilities, as well as OSHA and NFPA 68 standards for venting explosions and deflagrations.
