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.
RoboVent’s Isolation Valve acts as a “check valve” to prevent a pressure wave from traveling from the dust collector back into the facility. Safety measures such as this are especially important in facilities that handle a large amount of combustible dust. Any Fusion Series dust collector can be configured with the Deflagration System.
