AdixFlamecatch is designed for explosion venting for equipment in closed areas, without flame and without risk.
This system, combined with Adix Vent Panels, puts out the explosion flame, freeing the excess pressure in order to protect the equipment and personnel.
Given that in many occasions it is not possible to direct the explosion vent to a secure area, the supply elements that suppress the output of the flame are made necessary in case the vent panel was to break, a great option being flameless venting equipment.
This device substitutes the vent duct. When an explosion occurs in a receptacle with a flameless vent, the explosion panel that is incorporated in the flame arresters breaks and the explosion expands throughout the entire surface, which is made up of a special mesh that is designed to retain incandescent particles and flames, additionally it works to achieve efficient cool-down of the combustion gasses and noteworthy reduction of the effects of pressure waves.
The maximum pressure of explosion in a receptacle with flameless venting will be somewhat higher, due to the resistance when the combustible gasses pass through the mesh. This somewhat excess pressure can be offset with a small increase in the venting area.
