StuVent Explosion Venting

The oldest and most frequently used explosion protection technique is explosion venting. That means that weak points are deliberately introduced in the equipment in a controlled way. In case of an explosion, these weak points will open, and the explosion pressure is released. It is not easy to calculate and correctly position the right venting surface.
