Vigilex a Versatile, Robust Flameless Venting Panel System
The Vigilex Flameless Vents System was developed in response to a specific need, i.e. explosion venting inside buildings. Traditional explosion venting technologies require a safe venting area (usually outdoors), where there is no risk of secondary explosions or harm to personnel. Explosion vented plant has to be ducted out to a designated (external) safe area (usually within 3 to 6 metres). The only alternative was to strengthen vessels to withstand greater explosion pressures and/or to install relatively expensive explosion suppression systems.
The Vigilex design allows venting of explosions without the attendant risks of an external fireball and without the use of vent ducts. It is essentially a flame-arrester comprising a porous, heat-absorbing surface in the form of an arced quench box. The vented explosion enters the box, the gases are cooled as they pass through the porous surface, dust is filtered out and the flame is quenched. The internal surface-area of the Vigilex Flameless vent is designed so that the effective vent area is almost the same as if the vent itself was free.
The Vigilex Flameless Vent from Atex offer an incredibly effective flameless venting solution for your operation.
