USA — REMBE, a leader in the innovation of high-quality combustible dust explosion protection safety systems has introduced a new and improved EXKOP isolation system, a safe and effective means of isolating enclosures.

The REMBE EXKOP isolation system is available for more applications, including ST2 dusts and features reduced explosion pressures of up to 2 bar and larger diameters. The upgraded controllers allow for flexibility as process requirements change.

Isolation is required per NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) and is essential to protecting adjoining system components against the spread of combustible dust explosions.

Process equipment is usually connected by pipelines through which, if an explosion occurs, fire and pressure spread very rapidly.

REMBE’s EXKOP isolation system, consisting of a control panel, triggering devices, and one or more quench valves, can stop this sequence of events.

In the case of an explosion, the EXKOP controller receives a trigger signal from a burst indicator on a REMBE explosion panel, an infra-red signal, or a pressure sensor.

It then activates the connected EXKOP quench valves. These close within a few milliseconds and thus protect adjacent plant components. After being triggered, the quench valves can once again be put back in operation at the touch of a button.

For over 45 years, REMBE has been and continues to be a leader in the innovation of high-quality combustible dust explosion protection safety systems, process safety systems, and dynamic weighing systems.

As the inventor of flameless venting, REMBE specializes in combustible dust explosion prevention/protection systems for many applications across a multitude of industries.

Whether it’s food, pharmaceutical, chemical, wood, or metal dust, the REMBE EXKOP system keeps dust explosions safely in check.

REMBE has led the process safety industry in new, more adaptable rupture disc products to address ever‐changing, complex needs.

And the C‐LEVER dynamic weighing system provides a reliable, easy‐to-use-and-maintain option for continuous weighing.

The company takes a comprehensive approach, primarily developing and making its own products while also providing the relevant consultancy, engineering, and service.

All REMBE products are made in Germany and meet the requirements of national and international regulations.
