Decompression panels

Decompression panels provide a simple yet effective method of minimizing the effects of an explosion by releasing pressure and flames from the interior of the protected device to the surroundings, thus preventing it from tearing apart. When deciding to use decompression panels, it is important to remember that they have many limitations (e.g., they should not be used inside rooms, and the discharge of explosion effects must not be directed towards other devices, pedestrian paths, roads, buildings, etc.).

PANELE DEKOMPRESYJNE

Alternative safeguards for decompression panels.

Decompression panels

The most affordable protection method for use outside buildings. Flames and pressure are released into the environment (danger to people and equipment). The need to demarcate a danger zone.

Decompression panels in construction
  • The lowest price
  • Easy installation
  • Cannot be used indoors
  • Flames and pressure are ejected into the environment
  • A fire may occur after an explosion in the apparatus
  • Need to designate a hazard area
  • Do not use for harmful substances
  • The force of the recoil can topple the protected device
  • Single use
Flameless relief

Single-use protection method for indoor and outdoor use. Flames and pressure are NOT released into the environment. Reduced risk of fire in the apparatus after an explosion.

Flameless relief how it work
  • Also for enclosed spaces
  • No discharge of flame or pressure into the environment
  • Reduced risk of fire in the protected apparatus after an explosion
  • After an explosion, it requires component replacement
  • High weight (may require reinforcement of the protected device)
  • Do not use for harmful substances
  • Requires minimal room volume for installation
Relief valves

Reusable protection device for indoor and outdoor use. Flames and pressure are NOT released into the environment. Minimal risk of fire in the apparatus after an explosion.

EVN how it work
  • Also for enclosed spaces
  • No discharge of flame or pressure into the environment
  • Multiple use
  • Very low risk of fire in the protected apparatus after an explosion
  • Automatic closure of the valve after an explosion
  • High weight (may require reinforcement of the protected device)
  • Do not use for harmful substances
  • Requires minimal room volume for installation
Relief dampers

Reusable protection device for indoor and outdoor use. Flames and pressure are NOT released into the environment. Minimal risk of fire in the device after an explosion.

  • Also for enclosed spaces
  • No discharge of flame or pressure into the environment

Decompression panels

Brilex KER decompression panels

Brilex KER relief panels are ideal for use in bucket elevators, atmospheric tanks and other protected instruments where there is no variable pressure. One of the many advantages of this panel is the structurally reinforced edges, which allow installation without the need for an outlet flange, thus reducing costs of installation.

Brilex KE decompression panels

Brilex KE relief panels are the economically ideal solution for protecting process equipment, where the vacuum does not exceed 60% of the rated opening pressure. Brilex KE panel is a widely used explosion vent protection worldwide, as it is certified for Kst values up to 650 bar m/s and 100% venting efficiency.

Brilex GE decompression panels

Brilex GE relief panels are the ideal solution for protecting process equipment, where frequent and prolonged cycles of vacuum and overpressure occur. A distinctive feature of these dampers is domed design, which gives the panels resistance to negative pressure without the need for additional vacuum solutions.

Explosion Suppression HRD-E type extinguishing cylinders

Are you looking for a system without the above restrictions?

Check the explosion suppression systems

If the above systems have too many limitations, and you are looking for the most advanced explosion protection system, then be sure to check out explosion suppression systems. This is the solution free of the restrictions listed above. Often, this is also a perfect solution in terms of price, especially when considering the longer term use and installation costs.

Explosion isolation

The isolation complements the explosion protection system mentioned above. The purpose of the explosion isolation is to isolate the device in which the explosion occurred from the rest of the system. This eliminates the risk of pressure and fire going over onto adjacent equipment, which would lead to very dangerous secondary explosions. Why is it so dangerous? Because the fire and pressure are characterised by much higher dynamics and energy, and there are no safeguards to protect us in such a situation.

Prevention

According to the ATEX Directive, the employer, in order to protect property and the health and life of workers, should implement measures to prevent and minimise the effects of an explosion. This approach is based on the fact that although the safeguards can significantly reduce the risk of explosion, they can never provide 100% safety. We are facing a similar approach in our cars. Despite a number of preventive measures such as the ABS system, every car has crash mitigation measures which include air bags, seatbelts or structural reinforcements.

You are protected by our insurance

Only those who do nothing make no mistakes. And while the quality of the work carried out is a priority for us, it is not possible to completely eliminate human error. Unforeseen production stoppages or product contamination during the installation of a system might result in considerable losses. Similarly, a mistake during the design and installation of an explosion protection system can have dire consequences. That is why our insurance policy protects both us and your establishment from unforeseen costs. We have probably the highest insurance policy on the market.

Model approach to explosive safety in an industrial plant

Model approach to explosive safety in an industrial plant

Step 1
ATEX Audit

During the ATEX Audit, we will focus on deficiencies in explosive safety and indicate tasks that should be performed first to have the strongest impact on safety improvement.

Model approach to explosive safety in an industrial plant

Step 2
Protection Concept

The result of the ATEX Audit is also a preliminary concept of protecting the installation from explosion. It allows estimating the costs of protections. After testing the explosiveness parameters of the dust from the installation, we move on to the final concept and design.

Model approach to explosive safety in an industrial plant

Step 3
Design and selection of protections

After accepting the concept and testing the explosiveness parameters of the dust from the installation, we proceed to the final selection of explosion protections and create a design that takes into account all required changes in production.

Step 4
“Turnkey” delivery and installation

We coordinate the entire delivery and installation process of protections. We have our own service teams with experience in performing installation without the need to stop the investor’s plant operation.

Step 5
Execution of ERA and EPD

We conduct a post-implementation Explosion Risk Assessment (ERA) and prepare (or update) the Explosion Protection Document (EPD). We usually also conduct training for the crew in the field of explosive safety.
