The innovative flameless venting device scubex® cool+clean
certified according to DIN EN 16009:2011 for St1 material and metal dust
Approved for metal dust
The completely redesigned protective device is one of the few flameless venting systems that can be used for metal dust. Due to its optimised flow and strength characteristics, it exceeds the standard by far, setting new benchmarks in terms of costs and performance.
New filter technology provides a clean indoor solution
scubex® cool+clean is the first flameless venting system suitable for metal dust that uses filters categorised as M6/F8. They retain the dust released by an explosion almost completely and increase the cooling and protective effect. Depending on their specific use, the filter elements can be used up to 3 times or must be replaced after each explosion.
Reusable several times
After an explosion, only the filter and venting elements have to be replaced, rather than the whole device. The venting element consists of a blow-out flap mounted inside a cassette, which can be pulled out of the housing and slid back without much effort, just like a drawer. The replacement of the filter elements is just as easy. After exchanging the blow-out flap, the leak-proof seal of the system is restored. It is not necessary to dismantle the entire unit.
Maximum surface temperature 50°C
Due to the flow-optimised design and the insulating properties of the housing, the outer surface does not heat up more than 50°C during an explosion.
Low exit gas temperature
What we take most pride in is the unprecedented exit temperature of the combustion gases: it is below 50°C, even after metal dust explosions. There is no need to observe safety distances and the system is safe to be used in Zone 21.
Short safety distance required
Because of the low exit gas temperature and pressure and the insignificant temperature increase on the surface, the scubex® cool+clean does not necessitate additional precautions.
Reduced cost for operation and maintenance
- easy installation, easy-to-exchange venting cassette and filters
- no clogging or sticking → no internal cleaning required
- hardly any maintenance required
- long operating life
- excellent value for money
- can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical position
"Proactive" flame protection
In addition to the "cool+clean" version, we offer a "proactive" version of the blow-out flap, which is also certified. It contains a special extinguishing agent, which is released in the explosion and immediately extinguishes the flame inside the housing in a proactive way, i.e. without the interference of any other factors. It is intended to be used for materials with very high temperatures which are extremely difficult to extinguish.
We will be glad to help you determine the appropriate design for your special application.
