Rico_Produktrendering_VENTEX
  • Efficient

    Low pressure drop thanks to aerodynamically optimised design. Minimal maintenance required, can be used vertically or horizontally.

  • Robust

    Maximum 30 m/s flow velocity in explosion direction for flexible systems Design with pipe bends in front of the valve, versus flow separation through pipe bends.

  • Flexible

    Sealing materials for various requirements regarding temperature, process and media resistance. Approved for organic and metallic dusts and hybrid mixtures.

  • Standardised

    Connection flange according to EN 1092-1 or ASME B 16.5 Class 150

  • Practical

    Easy release from the outside. Configurable as single-acting, double-acting or non-return valve depending on the process.

  • Independent

    Passive protection system, no detection and control necessary.

Functional principle

VENTEX®
The passive explosion isolation

As the most widely used isolation component in the world, VENTEX® is used in a variety of areas, such as the pharmaceutical, chemical or food industries, metal processing and a multitude of other industries.

VENTEX® in rest position

In the resting state without air flow, the closing body is in the open position.

VENTEX® in normal operation

In normal operation, the medium flows around the open closing body.

VENTEX® after explosion

In the event of an explosion, the pressure wave presses the closing body against the closing body gasket, the valve is locked and thus the spread of flames and pressure waves is prevented.
