ELEVEX - Explosion protection of conveyors

ELEVEX is an effective certified solution for the explosion protection of vertical and horizontal conveyors. The ELEVEX system reduces the explosion pressure to an extremely low level. Although the use of the ELEVEX system does not prevent the occurrence of an explosion in an elevator or other similar transport system, the consequences can be reduced to a minimum. The system is unique with its variability in use, where we can design it both for conveyors inside buildings and for those that are located outside. It can also be installed on your already operating technologies without any additional modifications. The ELEVEX system is certified according to the CEN/TR 16829.

WHERE IS THE RISK?

During the transport of bulk materials, there is a high risk of explosion because of the complexity of the process. In event of an explosion, the damage is done not only to property but also to human health. Consequences from the explosion are associated with not only high costs for repair or replacement of the technology but the whole production line can be completely suspended or delayed due to more complex handling of transported material during limited production.

ADVANTAGES

  • certified protection system
  • easy installation even on existing technologies
  • suitable for high elevators
  • system variability

SUITABLE FOR

  • bucket elevators
  • horizontal conveyors
  • chain conveyors

ELEVEX SYSTEM VARIATIONS

EXPLOSION SUPPRESSION

Explosion suppression is the most common and widespread method of explosion protection for bucket elevators.

Elevex with explosion suppression RSBP

COMPONENTS

  • explosion detector
  • barriers preventing the propagation of an explosion at the entrance of the bucket elevator and the exit to the connected technologies and equipment
  • suppression on the top and bottom of the elevator

ADVANTAGES

  • reduces explosion pressure to an extremely low value - even existing and used technologies are safely protected in the event of an explosion without destructive consequences
  • a safe and suitable way to protect elevators that are located both outside and inside the building

EXPLOSION VENTING

The main purpose of explosion venting is that the flame and pressure wave will be released through the venting panels into a safe zone.

Elevex with Vent PRO RSBP

COMPONENTS

  • explosion detector
  • barriers preventing the transmission of an explosion at the entrance to the bucket elevator and the exit to the connected technologies and equipment
  • venting with specially developed vent panels

ADVANTAGES

  • extremely fast decrease of explosion pressure
  • an efficient, cost-effective solution, and easy installation
  • optional explosion venting panel opening sensors and thermal insulation
  • suitable for elevators located outside the building
  • in the event of an explosion, it will safely protect existing and already used technologies without destructive consequences

FLAMELESS EXPLOSION VENTING

The flameless explosion venting device FLEX prevents the spread of flame, thermal fronts and at the same time reduces pressure in the protected equipment.

Elevex with Flex RSBP

COMPONENTS

  • explosion detector
  • barriers preventing the transmission of an explosion at the entrance to the bucket elevator and the exit to the connected technologies and other equipment
  • flameless explosion venting

ADVANTAGES

  • effective capture of flame and temperature and provision of a secure zone for the movement of people, technology, and buildings
  • effective dust retention
  • high efficiency and system reliability
  • easy installation and maintenance-free operation
  • elimination of expensive building modifications
  • in the event of an explosion, it safely protects technologies without destructive consequences
  • economically convenient solution
