Brilex Explosion Vents have been dynamically tested by independent authorities All Brilex explosion Vents are now supplied with tags confirming a
Be careful - if your supplier does not state the "Effective"area - it is likely that the explosion vent does not conform to the latest requirements. Brilex complies with these requirements. Care should be taken when a manufacturer only states "vent area" without a venting efficiency confirmation.
The dynamic performance of Brilex's Single Section Design explosion Vents is superior to traditional designs (for example - composite / triple section) or other non certified devices found in the field. This is due to the light constuction and single metal membrane - ensuring that combustion is minimised after ignition by venting the contents quicker.
Brilex explosion vents are manufactured using the latest State of the Art Laser cutting technology ensuring a high level of reliability and accuracy. Brilex explosion vents/panels can be supplied with many options including insulation , sensing devices and optional materials for integrated gaskets depending on the application.
The explosion vent area can be calculated in most cases according to VDI 3673 Part1, 2002 , NFPA 68, 2007 (which supersedes NFPA 68, 2002) or other international guidelines if applicable. The new EN - European standard is also soon to be sanctioned.
