Q-­BOX - Cost-effective indoor explosion venting for dust explosions

 

Applications

The Q-Box is designed for plant components with low rigidity and large explosion venting areas. The rectangular connection complements the dimensions of standard explosion vents thus allowing it to be retrofitted to existing indoor and outdoor equipment.

Your competitive advantages

  • Process-optimised plant layout
  • No external maintenance costs

The sanitary cover protects the Q-Box against dust from outside sources.

 

Mechanism

The Q-Box guarantees safe explosion venting in working areas. Like the Q-Rohr®, the flame gases are instantly extinguished inside the Q-Box by efficient cooling.

Your advantages

  • Flexible use of the Q-Box permits process-efficient plant design.
  • Reduces noise levels.
  • Perfect protection of the surrounding area. Neither heat, dusts nor a dangerous pressure wave emerge from the vessel – everything stays in the Q-Box.
  • Cost-effective alternative to venting ducts: No running costs for venting ducts and external maintenance, a visual inspection is sufficient.
  • Integrated signalling unit for reliable monitoring.
  • Flexible solution for indoor and outdoor use.
  • Simple retrofitting to existing explosion vent installations.
  • Reduced downtime: Access to the protected plant does not require a safety interlock (LOTO).
