Test Explosion Protection On Your Equipment
This easy-to-use tool helps confirm which protection methods are available for your equipment based on its handled dust type, size, location and more. Results and recommendations are then emailed to you for your records. Note: this tool is currently available in English only
Our Explosion Protection Capabilities
With proprietary testing facilities and both passive and active explosion protection devices, explore how Fike offers comprehensive dust explosion prevention and mitigation through our following capabilities:
Combustible Dust Testing
Provide accurate ASTM and CEN-standard measurements of a dust’s explosive characteristics represented in real-world applications. Results of dust testing may be used to determine the best solutions to protect potential combustible dust hazard areas within a facility.
Protect equipment from potential combustible dust explosions by providing a planned pathway for flames and pressure wave to escape. With composite, flameless, hygienic and bucket elevator options, Fike is a leading worldwide manufacturer of life- and equipment-saving ATEX-certified explosion venting solutions.
Prevent the propagation and strengthening of flame from one part of the system to another. Fike engineers and manufactures a variety of fast-acting isolation solutions, ranging from passive ValvEx flap valves to active valves such as the Fike Explosion Isolation Valve (EIV) gate valves and chemical suppression barriers.
Designed to chemically suppress an explosion in its earliest stages before it becomes catastrophic. Suppression is often required when processing materials are toxic and unsafe to release through an explosion vent.
