Brilex Indoor Explosion Vents are used where flameless indoor explosion venting is required. In many instances explosion venting via a duct to a safe area may not be feasible from a design or plant layout perspective.BRILEX IndoorVents are applied for Dust Explosion Venting inside production buildings..
Indoor Explosion Venting
By using BRILEX Explosion Vents in combination with a unique BRILEX Ceramic Filter, economical indoor venting of dust explosions is possible. When the vent opens during an explosion, the ceramic filter retains the dust and cools down the hot gases.
Existing quench pipes are uneconomical, not re-usable or have lower venting efficiencies requiring high vessel strength. The BRILEX IndoorVent offers unlimited use with the highest known efficiency.
Due to high investigation costs and bad efficiency, design engineers and end users tried to find alternatives. The BRILEX IndoorVent offers a combination of a fast opening BRILEX Explosion Vent with a highly efficient ceramic filter. The vent area of the IndoorVent is greater than the vent areas of existing quench pipes. After an explosion, the IndoorVent can be re-used. The result is a cost effective solution for plant designers and end users for all industries.
The BRILEX IndoorVent can be used for reduced explosion pressures (Pred) between 0.2 to 1.5 bar g and Kst values up to 250 bar.m/sec.
After an Explosion
Times have changed since explosion quenching systems had to be thrown in to the waste bin after single use. The BRILEX IndoorVent can be re-used after changing the filter cartridges and the explosion vent. Maintenance time of approximately 30 minutes is only needed before it can be used again. BRILEX guarantees this after each dust explosion.
Approvals and Certificates
The BRILEX IndoorVent has been tested by well known institutions and is certified according to the ATEX 100a standard. BRILEX is certified to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000
BRILEX delivers complete units consisting of the IndoorVentŪ and a pre-installed BRILEX explosion vent including integrated flange gaskets and monitoring sensor. A spare parts kit for immediate use after an explosion consisting of explosion vent and filter cartridges
In March 2007 at the Powtech Exhibition in Nuremberg, Brilex released its New EXL Rectangular Indoor Vent - now allowing more cost effective solution options for venting inside production buildings.
