XP Venting on Dust Collectors

A leading manufacturer and distributer of high-quality packaging materials improved safety for the plant and employees by installing XP venting on existing dust collectors. The XP venting will prevent minor to massive explosions. There is simple system upkeep, and production is increased by being able to re-use product in the collector.


Project Highlights:

  • Retrofitted existing dust collector to be compliant with NFPA 68 and NFPA 454 to ensure a safe work environment and proper explosion venting and isolation.
  • Installed a flame quench unit with XP rupture panel along with NFPA complaint NRV isolation valve to contain a potential explosion and properly vent and disperse any flames.
  • Included NEMA controls panel to properly interlock NRV isolation valve and process equipment such as dust collector fan.
  • All modifications were done on-site with minimal downtime to central dust collector.
