REMBE: Explosion safety
The 3 key features of a modern protection concept 1) Reliability and productivity: Protection systems must be permanently available and operational. The possibility of false triggers must be excluded as this reduces the productivity of the plant. 2) Compliance: Modern protection systems must satisfy all legal requirements and thus guarantee legal compliance for plant operators. 3) Cost-effectiveness: Protection systems must be as simple as possible to install and require minimum investment of time and financial resources. The running costs of the systems must also be kept as low as possible. All protection concepts from REMBE meet these requirements. Below you can find some highlighted products.

Explosion vents
In the case of an explosion, an explosion vent will rupture and thus protect the vessel by reducing the overpressure within it and releasing the explosion into the surrounding environment in a controlled manner. Industrial processes vary widely depending on the sector and the product. No two processes are identical. For this reason, REMBE supplies explosion vents in a variety of different shapes, materials, temperature- and pressure resistances and many other specifications. For more information: click here..
Flameless venting
During flameless explosion venting, the flames are cooled rapidly and efficiently in the mesh filter of the flame absorber and extinguished immediately. No flames and no pressure wave exit the vessel. The filter design guarantees that no burned or combustible materials are ejected. This does not only reduce the consequences of the explosion, it also provides the highest level of protection for employees. For more information: click here..
Isolation
The objective of explosion isolation or decoupling is to protect adjacent parts of the plant and prevent the explosion from propagating. Explosion isolation systems use components such as quench valves and non-return flaps or valves. Chemical extinguishing barriers are also commonly used to smother the explosion flames. Valves and extinguishing barriers are capable of isolating components in both directions simultaneously. For more information: click here..
Suppression
Explosion safety includes explosion suppression as well as explosion venting and isolation. This method extinguishes the explosion just as it is beginning – and well before the pressure rises to a critical level. Explosion suppression systems use sensors to detect sparks or flames as they are created and instantly open connected containers of extinguishing agent. In the blink of an eye, these discharge a highly effective extinguishing powder and smother the germ of the explosion. For more information: click here..
