Managing Dust Explosions

Managing the risks of industrial dust explosions is needed in industrial facilities where explosive industrial solids are present. Typically pressure-relief devices, like explosion vents, are installed to depressurize specific areas before the pressurized equipment is damaged by explosion.

The pressure release is often accompanied by dust and flames which require a large outdoor space to be evacuated safely. Where space is constricted Rembe makes the Targo-Vent® which channels the flame front and dust on to a different vector freeing up the space in front of the explosion vent.

The Rembe Q-Box® is designed for pressure relief of areas inside the plant structure where traditional explosion vents are not enough. The Q-Box® can extract the pressure and flames from the over-pressurized areas and extinguish it in milliseconds.

Increase Safety & Reduce Downtime


REMBE® explosion safety systems ensure maximum system availability. Reduce downtime with quality explosion ventsQ-Rohr® and Q-Box - the originals of flameless venting as well as a suppression and a variety of isolation devices.

Explosion Panels

EDPREMBE® offers explosion protection panels for most applications and working conditions.

Whether your application is a highly corrosive environment or other extreme working condition, such as frequently changing, pulsating or vacuum pressure, REMBE® has the right explosion panel for your facility.

REMBE® Explosion Panels distinguish themselves by extremely precise bursting pressures.

REMBE® Explosion Panels are non-fragmenting and have ideal opening characteristics, resulting in maximized vent opening and pressure release.  Learn more about Rembe Explosion Panels.

Flameless Venting

Q-BoxWith conventional explosion venting, flame propagation as well as shock waves are directed into “safe” areas, but in reality could endanger anyone located in the surrounding areas.  Likewise, the typical pressure wave and noise in the production hall are reduced to a barely perceptible minimum. The filter design guarantees that no burned or combustible materials are ejected. This does not only reduce the consequences of the explosion, it also provides the highest level of protection for employees.  Learn more about Rembe Flameless Venting.

Isolation

Q-FlapNumerous processes can cause explosive dust/air mixtures within industrial systems (dust collectors, mixingmachines, fluid bed granulators, mills, and the like).  If ignition sources cannot be eliminated due to process conditions, these systems are often equipped with explosion protection measures like venting or suppression.  This way, connected ductwork is decoupled or isolated from protected enclosures and flames and explosion pressure will not be conveyed into other areas.  Learn more about Rembe Isolation.

Explosion Suppression

q-bicThe Q-Bic system is suitable for indoor applications where the explosion cannot be discharged to the outside atmosphere. It extinguishes the explosion at the point of ignition. Combustions are identified and immediately suppressed due to the prompt release of dry powder in the endangered area. The dry powder extracts the heat. The explosion is inerted. As the explosion is limited consequential losses are reduced to a minimum.   Learn more about Explosion Suppression.
