The Interceptor-FV explosion isolation valve is an NFPA-compliant device that is designed to provide a passive explosion isolation solution for dust collectors. During normal operating conditions, the Interceptor explosion isolation flap valve is mechanically retained in the open position. This results in a low pressure drop across the valve as compared to similar models that rely on the process flow to open the valve. During an upset condition, the regular flow is interrupted and a flux of pressure coming from the opposite direction causes the flap valve to slam and lock shut, effectively preventing the dust deflagration from propagating to interconnected equipment.
