Explosion Vent Panels

Our explosion vent panels provide instantaneous overpressure protection for nearly any type of pressurized dry-bulk handling and storage equipment.

The vent panels are designed to allow a full and immediate opening to minimize structural or mechanical damage by expanded gases from the combustion of dust, gases or mists inside equipment, rooms, buildings or other enclosures.

Our vent panels are offered in rectangular, square or circular configurations and in several constructions to meet the operating parameters of your application.

The VP series

The VP series vent panel is a flat, scored and fluoropolymer-coated aluminum panel. This panel is best suited for operating conditions of positive pressure or vacuum pulsations. It is recommended for a maximum 50% operating-to-burst pressure ratio, positive or negative.

The CP series

The CP series vent panel is a flat, composite-style panel constructed of 316 SS and fluoropolymer. This panel is ideal for cyclic operating conditions, going from positive to negative or negative to positive pressures. A 50% maximum operating-to-burst pressure ratio is recommended.

The SFC & CFC series

The SFC solid metal and CFC composite (metal/fluoropolymer) vent panels are pre-bulged, circular designs. These panels are suitable for higher operating conditions of up to 70% of the burst rating positive pressure and negative pressure of up to 14.7 psig (1.02 barg) full vacuum.
