Explosive ventilation is the most proven form of eruption assistance. The ventilation ignition plate is designed to be sure to break in the event of overpressure. Deflagration pressure can exit first through the vents and then into the atmosphere. This prevents the ignition from gaining momentum and has severe consequences.
Ventilation panels are located on or near dust collectors, process vessels, or equipment. Installation of VMP explosion vent panels requires professional support.
It involves the use of stainless steel plates (sometimes called aeration membranes, cracked plates, or cracked discs) and is typically installed in silos, filters, mills, crushers, separators, extractors, collectors, and more. In fact, any application of fire after an explosion can use the eruption to allow smoke to be released into a safe area.
The most cost-effective form of ignition protection is, of course, explosion protection. So before you consider something as drastic as suppressing an explosion, it's a good idea to find out first if the ventilation is adequate. However, if you are unsure of your ignition protection requirements, calling a professional can be helpful.
The aeration apparatus is connected to other parts of the process, mainly via piping. Although the vent plate reduces the pressure, its spread can be reversed through the pipe. For this reason, hazardous pipe insulation must always be accompanied by hazardous ventilation.
