The Dangers of Secondary Explosions
History has shown that the most devastating dust explosions often occur after the initial deflagration propagates into downstream equipment, causing widespread damage and casualties. Learn how if not properly isolated, secondary explosions may propagate…
To prevent secondary explosions, Fike offers reliable, fast-acting products for applications requiring passive or active explosion-isolating solutions.
Active Explosion Isolation Solutions
Active explosion isolation valves are controlled by an explosion detector, which continually monitors conditions and triggers these valves in the event of a deflagration. Fike’s active explosion isolation products include:
Passive Explosion Isolation Solutions
Passive explosion isolation valves are triggered by the airflow from a deflagration. Fike’s passive explosion isolation products include:
