Rembe Introduces Targo-Vent Explosion Protection
Rembe’s comprehensive explosion protection system diverts the shock wave and flames of an explosion in a controlled manner, reducing the required safety area and protecting personnel and equipment from the explosion’s effects, according to the company. Targo-Vent is an opening angle limiter developed especially for Rembe Explosion Panels that guides the pressure relief specifically into areas in which there is no danger to the adjoining infrastructure. Targo-Vent absorbs the repulsive forces of the explosion energy and guides the flames and shock wave in the desired direction. Depending on the application and equipment, the flames and shock wave are diverted at a defined angle of approximately 30 to 45 degrees upwards or to the side.
Targo-Vent’s top module is made in standard explosion panels sizes for easy retrofitting on existing Rembe Explosion Panels. Retrofits or building additions are protected by Targo-Vent without the need to significantly alter the explosion protection plan of the existing facility, according to the company. Targo-Vent requires no baseplates or reinforcements. The system is made from maintenance-free stainless steel materials and, in combination with Rembe Explosion Panels, is type-tested in accordance with the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 114) and authorized in accordance with (FSA 13 ATEX 1637).
