One of the highlights is the latest generation of the VENTEX® explosion protection valve. “We are sure that we can absolutely convince the trade fair visitors with the new product advantages”, explains RICO CEO Aleksandar Agatonovic and adds that the VENTEX® explosion protection valve – although it has proven itself on the market for many years – is constantly being further developed. The optimized quality product has a flow rate of at least 30 m/s in all nominal diameters and thus ensures a very high degree of process stability. The installation can be placed directly upstream or downstream of pipe bends and even double pipe bends or combinations of pipe bends in different directions are no problem. In this way, clear advantages are achieved in system planning: Since the customers have to reserve less space and no straight inlet section is required, a maximum of flexibility is enabled. The installation distance for organic dust has also been extended and is between 2 m and 15 m – depending on the nominal diameter. In addition, the previously unavailable nominal diameter DN250 is now available as standard.
The maintenance modalities have also been improved and important flow and gasket optimizations have been achieved. This is because gaskets not only prevent a possible flameout, but also dampen the high accelerations when closing the valve in case of an explosion. In addition, due to a new type of plug-in technology in the area of the closing body gasket, maintenance can be carried out in a cost-effective, simple and quick manner, which facilitates rapid recommissioning. Another highlight is the 20-year guarantee that RICO grants for its product with regular maintenance and proper care. The latter speaks a clear language in terms of quality, reliability and durability. “The VENTEX® valve has become an important part of the market and enjoys a very good reputation. It stands for safety and the highest quality made in Switzerland,” says Aleksandar Agatonovic.
However, interested parties from the bulk industry can also experience other product highlights at the RICO booth. With the RSV, the experts are showing the fastest explosion protection valve on the market, which impresses with its easy handling and short installation distances to the source of the explosion. Another highlight is the active explosion protection valve REDEX® Slide to protect pressure-relieved and suppressed systems. Above all, it meets customer requirements regarding reduced explosion pressure and responds to pressure and/or flame sensors. Finally, the RICO range is completed with the passive explosion protection non-return valve REDEX® Flap, which is especially predestined for very dust-intensive processes with low pressure requirements and is often used in the course of the explosion-related isolation of filters.
RICO has something very special in store for visitors to the trade fair: Just in time for the Powtech, the company will be presenting an absolutely new product in the field of explosion isolation.
CONSTANTLY ENHANCING YOUR SAFETY. This has been the objective of RICO Sicherheitstechnik AG since 1988. The components we have developed provide effective protection against the spread of explosions in industrial systems and our butterfly valves close off ventilation ducts, providing a 100 % gastight seal.
