REMBE has stood for outstanding quality “Made in Germany” for over 40 years. The company will once again present innovations from its three divisions Explosion Protection, Process Safety and Measurement Technology at this year’s POWTECH trade fair. Products launched over recent months will provide the major focus: the Q-Rohr for metal dusts, a new type of quench valve and a bursting disc certified by EHEDG for hygienic applications are just a few examples.
Bidirectional isolation: EXKOP quench valve – newer, stronger, better
EXKOP quench valves have been in the news over recent weeks. Firstly, the tried and trusted EXKOP QV II is now also available for dust class 2 and a reduced explosion pressure (pred) of up to 2 bar. In addition, the launch of the EXKOP QV III, the new big brother of the QV II, means it is now possible to protect lines with diameters of between 300 and 600 mm. With an innovative, space-saving design, it can even be installed in confined areas where space is at a premium. Direct integration of the pressure storage tank keeps the dimensions to the minimum.
Stay Qool – REMBE Q-Rohr
Innovation is a tradition at REMBE. In the area of explosion protection, the invention of flameless venting solutions – the Q-Rohr and Q-Box – is probably the most important in the history of the company.
We have continuously developed and improved these products since the 1980s and they are now in use worldwide. The Q‑Rohr and Q-Box can be found in a whole range of sectors from the food processing industry to chemicals and pharmaceuticals. The advantages of flameless venting are immediately obvious: the entire production process remains inside the building and there is no need for expensive, bulky venting ducts that require modifications to be made to existing structures. The integrated bursting disc is fitted with a signalling unit that immediately reports any incidents to the process control system. The special stainless steel mesh filter inlet ensures that the pressure rise and increased noise level associated with free vented explosions are massively reduced to negligible levels in the production room. Dust and flames are retained by the mesh filter inlet. The Q-Rohr has a round design. Consequently, it is vacuum resistant and ideal for the protection of pneumatic conveying systems as well as many other applications.
The Q-Rohr and Q-Box also compare favourably with active fire extinguishing systems. They generate no running costs, false triggering damages only the bursting disc and the product remains unaffected. No regular maintenance is required, an annual visual inspection is more than adequate. The products are certified by ATEX and also comply with many other currently relevant standards. New: The Q-Rohr can now also be used with metal dusts. Due to their extreme properties in explosive situations (e.g. temperatures can be twice as high as those with most other dusts), metal dusts create special challenges for protection systems. The Q-Rohr is the first system to be certified in accordance with DIN EN 16009.
