Flameless Devices

Flameless venting

APPLICATIONS

The VIGILEX VQ is a rectangular flameless device connected with an internal standard panel VIGILEX bursting panel.
It can be used with great effect indoors and outdoors and is a fast and easy solution instead of cumbersome and expensive solutions with pipe installations to the open air.
VIGILEX VQ provides effective low pressure resistance, eliminating the spread of flame and glowing particles. During the early stage of an explosion the explosion vent opens. The flame, burned and unburned dust enter the flame arrestor element. Flame propagation beyond the VQ is prevented by energy dissipation in the filter element, reducing the burning fuel below its ignition temperature.
The dust is retained within the VQ and gases from the explosion are vented through the device into the external atmosphere around the device.
