Indoor Explosion Venting

By using BRILEX Explosion Vents in combination with a unique BRILEX Ceramic Filter, economical venting of dust explosions is possible. When the vent opens during an explosion, the ceramic filter retains the dust and cools down the hot gases.

Development Criterion

Existing quench pipes are uneconomical, not re-usable or have lower venting efficiencies requiring high vessel strength. The BRILEX IndoorVent offers unlimited use with the highest known efficiency.


Applications

Due to high investment costs and bad efficiency, design engineers and end users tried to find alternatives. The BRILEX IndoorVent offers a combination of a fast opening BRILEX Explosion Vent with a high efficient ceramic filter. The vent area of the IndoorVent is greater than the vent areas of existing quench pipes. After an explosion the IndoorVent can be re-used. The result is a cost effective solution for plant designers and end users for all industries.


Parameters

The BRILEX IndoorVent can be used for reduced explosion pressures (P red) between 0.2 to 1.5 bar g and K st values up to 250 bar m/sec.


After an Explosion

Times have changed since explosion quenching systems had to be thrown into the waste bin after single use. The BRILEX IndoorVent can be re-used after changing the filter cartridges and the explosion vent. Maintenance time of approximately 30 minutes is only needed before it can be used again. BRILEX guarantees this after each dust explosion.
