Explosion protection- Rembe relief panels

Many industrial processes generate high quantities of fine dust, which can become highly explosive when enriched with oxygen.

According to Orthos, which now supplies explosion relief panels from Rembe in Germany, the ATEX Directive strongly requests additional constructive explosion protection in plants operating with fine dusts, such as explosion venting with relief panels.

Such panels must resist operating pulsations and temperature changes, corrosive environments, and early material fatigue. Orthos says Rembe’s ‘Ex-Go-Vent’ explosion relief panels feature bionic structures, which eliminate all such operational problems. Approved to FSA 04 ATEX 1538X, their patented design is said to guarantee durability and an exceptionally long working life under all production conditions. The panels are available in 25 different standard dimensions for a wide range of applications.
