Guide pressure relief to where it is least harmful

By Gerald Ondrey |

Targo-Vent (photo) is an opening angle limiter, developed for use with this company’s Explosion Panels, which guides the pressure relief specifically into areas in which there is no danger to the adjoining infrastructure. Targo-Vent absorbs the enormous repulsive forces of explosion energy and guides the flames and shockwave in the desired direction. Depending on the particular application and associated equipment, the flames and shockwave are diverted at a defined angle of approximately 30–45 deg upwards or to the side so facility operators can minimize the safety areas around the vent opening. The usable area is increased. The system is made of maintenance-free stainless-steel materials and, in combination with Explosion Panels, is type-tested in accordance with the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 114), authorized in accordance with (FSA 13 ATEX 1637) and fully conforms to NFPA Standards. — Rembe Inc., Charlotte, N.C.
