Oseco's MV-RD is the best in class, high performance, domed designed explosion vent for high cycling applications such as dust collectors, bag houses, and bulk storage units that experience vacuum pressures up to 12 psig or 24.4 inHg. The MV-RD's high cycling characteristics reduce maintenance and increase the vents life cycle. The MV-RD meets the requirements of NFPA 68.
It's not just wood dust that is dangerous; dust from rubber, grain, sugar, plastics, metals and other materials are as hazardous or even more so than wood dust.
The dust a metal shop produces is divided into two general categories: 1) Large dust particles, chips, shavings and 2) fine metal dust. The fine metal dust is extremely combustible and a collection system needs the correct vents.
Agricultural dust is just as deadly in a silo as it would be in a conveying system. Fine dust is always present in silos containing wheat, corn, flour, and other agricultural products. Proper venting can help reduce the damage of a contained deflagration.
