Pneumatically-operated Explosion Isolation Pinch Valve (EIPV) provides an economical, yet highly reliable method of preventing deflagration propagation through interconnecting pipes or conveying lines, protecting additional process equipment and/or operating locations. When an explosion event is detected, a heavy duty food grade elastomeric sleeve closes at high speed, using standard plant air. Through extensive testing, the design has proven to block explosion pressures of 3 bar. For activation, the EIPV uses a new solenoid output version of Fike‘s EPACO control module. The EIPV can be mounted vertical or horizontal, can be reset by users, and is virtually maintenance free.
