Isolation Valve

The Isolation Valve acts as a “check valve” to prevent a pressure wave from traveling from the dust collector back into the facility. This reduces the danger of a secondary dust explosion caused by dust stirred up by a pressure wave that propagates back into the facility. Part of the RoboVent Deflagration System. 

How It Works

A key component of RoboVent’s Deflagration System, the Isolation Valve stops explosions before they spread. One of the greatest dangers of combustible dust is the risk of a small explosion turning into a much larger one. If a propagation wave from the first event can travel through a facility and stir up enough dust, a new, much larger secondary explosion can occur. These secondary explosions are the ones that can destroy entire facilities and injure or kill workers. The Isolation Valve prevents this propagation.
