I-Flex™ Explosion Isolation Valve

I-Flex™ Explosion Isolation Valve

Preventing Deflagration Propagation

The Fike I-Flex consists of a heavy-duty valve body containing a rugged though flexible elastomer process section. Upon explosion detection, compressed air is released at high speed and within milliseconds the sleeve is “pinched” to full closure, stopping explosion propagation beyond the valve.

The Fike I-Flex consists of a heavy-duty valve body containing a rugged though flexible elastomer process section. Upon explosion detection, compressed plant air is released at high speed int othe valve body such that the process section is fully closed within milliseconds. This full closure provides a mechanical block to flame and pressure, thereby stopping explosion propagation beyond the valve. Used in conjunction with other Fike explosion protection system components, the I-Flex is designed to provide a user friendly and cost effective means to prevent deflagration propagation through interconnecting pipes or conveying lines to other process equipment or operating locations.
