Rembe upgrades controllers in EXKOP isolation system, allows process flexibility

June 20, 2022
By Rembe

Rembe is a leader in the innovation of high-quality combustible dust explosion protection safety systems. A safe and effective means of isolating enclosures must be an integral component of such a system. The new and improved Rembe EXKOP isolation system is available for many more applications such as ST 2 dusts, reduced explosion pressures (Pred) of up to 2 bar, and larger diameters! Newly upgraded controllers allow for flexibility as your process requirements change.

Why Isolation?

Isolation is required per NFPA and essential to protecting adjoining system components against the spread of combustible dust explosions. Process equipment are usually connected by pipelines through which, if an explosion occurs, fire and pressure spread very rapidly. The intensity of the explosion in connected containers is increased by pressure piling and flame jet ignition.

This sequence of events can be prevented by the Rembe EXKOP isolation system, consisting of a control panel, triggering devices, and one or more quench valves. The integrated elastomer seal within the quench valve closes within milliseconds, triggered by a signal from a burst indicator on a Rembe explosion panel, an infra-red signal, or a pressure sensor. The Rembe EXKOP system is fail-safe and easy to test/reset at the press of a button.

Whether it’s food, pharmaceutical, chemical, wood or metal dust, the Rembe EXKOP System keeps dust explosions safely in check. Learn more at:
