Best products: Containment, Inerting and Isolation

Due to the hazardous nature of the products in these industries a very strict regime of prevention through process control, Inerting and containment is in place. Consequently we sell most of our Active slam shut valves and passive barrier valves to this sector.  It is critical to maintain the integrity of the plant and prevent propagation of; spark, flame or pressure, when the consequential loss of life from the hazard itself is so high.

Containment/Isolation Method

The primary hazard/risk process equipment is all made to 10 bar Containment. From the Mill to the Filter is installed active slam Shut valves which are air actuated by a signal from the Pressure Explosion Detectors PXD. The clean side of the Filter to the Fan is protected by the cheaper / simpler option of the barrier valve, actuated by the velocity of the explosion pressure. All the remaining explosion pressure/flame paths are isolated by the plant ATEX certified Rotary Valves.
