Explovent is the only explosion venting system that can be field-tested at any time.

Get to know the NFPA Codes

For an explosion to occur only three common elements must exist: a fuel, a source of ignition and confinement.

Explovent is designed to be the weakest part of the external structure of a facility. As the vent experiences a pressure rise from within the building, the vent opens quickly allowing the rapidly expanding gases to be released outside. By doing so, the internal walls, floor and ceiling are spared from the potentially catastrophic overpressures developed during a deflagration.

Explovent presents the necessary response towards meeting the challenges associated with operating in systems that supports ideal environments for explosions. Explovent ultimately provides facilities with the highly supported, cost-effective and code-compliant solution towards combating the reoccurring devastation fuelled by combustible dust, gas and chemicals within the industrial and manufacturing sector.

  • sources of Ignition
  • Flame – welding torches
  • Electric – arcs, sparks, electrostatic charges
  • Mechanical – friction, grinding, impact
  • Hot Surfaces – overheated bearings
  • Sources of Fuels
  • Dust (Sugar, Cornstarch, Wheat Flour, Soybean, Charcoal, Wood, Aluminum)
  • Gas (Acetylene, Butane, Hydrogen, Methane, Propane, Acetone, Benzene, Ethers)
  • Chemical Explosion
  • Hybrid Explosion (any combination of Gas, Dust, or Chemicals)

There’s an Explovent for every condition.
