TARGO-VENT is an opening angle limiter developed especially for bursting discs, which guides the pressure relief specifically into areas, in which there is no danger for the adjoining infrastructure.
TARGO-VENT dynamically and progressively cushions the bursting disc situated beneath it, and can therefore also assimilate large kinetic forces resiliently. The damper absorbs the enormous repulsive forces of the explosion energy and guides the flames and shock wave in the desired direction.
Depending on what’s required the flames and shock wave are diverted at a defined angle of approx. 30° to approx. 45° upwards or to the side. Facility operators can therefore minimise the safety areas around the vent opening. The utilisable area is increased.
A further advantage of TARGO-VENT: the top module is made in all the usual bursting disc sizes, so that retrofitting in existing units can be undertaken without a problem. Conversions or new buildings are protected by TARGO-VENT without the explosion protection concept of the existing facility having to be significantly altered.
TARGO-VENT is assembled on the bursting disc in a space-saving manner. There is no need for expensive baseplates or reinforcements. The system is made from maintenance-free stainless steel materials and, in combination with REMBE® bursting discs and pressure relief panels, is type-tested in accordance with the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 114) and authorised in accordance with (FSA 13 ATEX 1637).
