Spark Detection and Extinguishing Systems
Uses inferred sensors to detect sparks in the dust collector’s main dirty air inlet duct. Immediately upon spark detection, a water mist is sprayed into the duct to extinguish the spark.
High Speed Abort Gates
Designed to divert process air in the event of a deflagration. They are often tied into a spark detection system to trigger when an ignition source is detected. They do not react quickly enough to be NFPA compliant as an outlet isolation device. Its primary purpose is to divert burning debris and smoke from entering the building.
Explosion Isolation Valves / Backdraft Damper
NFPA requires the installation of an explosion isolation device on all suction side ducts that transport material with a Kst value above zero. Installing an Explosion Isolation Valve (EIV) will protect workers and facilities from the damaging effects of a baghouse or cartridge filter explosion. Glacier Technology offers a wide variety of industrial dampers suited to a variety of heavy duty air control applications. Our dampers are available in corrosion resistant stainless steel construction, or high temperature heat resistant alloys.
Industrial Spark Arrestors
Spark arrestors extinguish sparks & burning embers and can prevent fires and explosions. Drop down clean-out door helps eliminate dust build up and explosion risk.
