In order to protect personnel and process plants, an explosion must be isolated at an early stage. The Wey high speed valve HSI was specially developed for use in pipelines at risk of dust explosions. It can be installed between pipelines connecting silos, mills, dryers, filters and more where combustible dusts or gazes are processed or stored. In case of an explosion the valve closes in up to 23 milliseconds and prevents the further spreading of the explosion. The "SpeedWey" HSI is based on a through gate valve design and therefore offers a fully open and unrestricted bore passage.
