Larger Explosion Isolation Valves Available
Interceptor-FV explosion isolation valve

The Interceptor-FV explosion isolation valve is now available in line sizes up to 44 in. in diameter. The valves are designed to prevent explosion propagation from one vessel to another through interconnected piping. During normal operating conditions, the Interceptor-FV is mechanically retained open. This results in a low pressure drop across the valve as compared to similar models that rely on the process air 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 or areas.  The Interceptor-FV has been tested and certified to latest EN 16447 test standard for isolation flap valves.
