Lockout Assembly Prevents Explosion Suppression Container Discharge

By Chemical Processing Staff

Oct 31, 2012

Fike announces the release of a new design for its HRD lockout assembly. This explosion-protection product is a mechanical barrier used to prevent an accidental discharge of an explosion suppression container (HRD) into the process vessel during maintenance and cleaning of the vessel and/or protection system.

The product’s new primary sensor and magnet electronically disable Fike's explosion protection controller when the gate is not in the full open position. It also features a simplified design with 300 series stainless-steel construction and optional secondary sensor for safe condition monitoring.

Available in 4-inch and 6-inch sizes, Fike's HRD lockout assembly is fully compatible with all existing Fike explosion suppression installations. The product can also be installed in hazardous-area locations with  use of an optional intrinsic safety barrier. The HRD lockout is compliant with OSHA requirement 29 CFR 1910.147, The Control of Hazardous Energy (lockout-tagout), NFPA 69-2008, 11.3 Personnel Safety and EN 14373.
