Our Company

Message From The President

cv technology presidentWhen we first opened our doors in 1994, CV Technology had a simple vision; provide a passive means of protecting against combustible dust explosions. The vision seemed simple enough at the time. Provide a solution that will keep a facility safe while not being obtrusive to the process. Our thought was if it is complicated and created maintenance headaches, one could simply bypass the protection all together, and we did not want that to happen.

As we grew, we invested heavily in our people. We knew that by investing in our people, we would inherently expand our product offering and market presence. This allowed us to increase what we could protect while maintaining our initial vision; providing safety for the facility while keeping it simple. We were custom designing protection solutions based on our client’s needs rather than trying to implement one product into all applications.

Now, we pride ourselves on being your partner in combustible dust safety. Whether you need continuing education on combustible dusts, require dust testing, need guidance on the latest codes and standards, or a solution to protect your facility, we have you covered. Each member of our sales staff has an engineering degree and take the time to meet with you, understand your needs, recognize your concerns, tour your facility, and design solutions that work for you.

CV Technology is a global leader in explosion protection. We recommend what is right, not necessarily what is easy. We demand excellence from ourselves and care about our relationships with our clients. Working together with you, we provide explosion protection solutions that keep your people and your processes safe.

About CV Technology

CV Technology specializes in complete explosion and fire protection solutions for the prevention and mitigation of explosions and fire hazards that result from the manufacturing and handling of dry bulk materials.  Over the past 20 years in the industry, we have become one of the world leaders in superior fire and explosion protection design.

Safety and continuity of process are of major value to all companies.  Powders and dry bulk materials, production, and handling methods commonly used put factories, equipment, process, and employees at risk.  The proper strategy for dust explosion and fire protection is unique for each situation, factory, process, and company.   Our, engineering, manufacturing, and system integration capabilities allow us to custom tailor each safety solution specific to the conditions within the operation.  Our unique approach has led to an unblemished safety record and is the reason we have become the safety vendor of choice for a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies.

  • NFPA 69 Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems.
  • NFPA 91 Standard for Exhaust Systems for Air Conveying of Vapors, Gases, Mists, and Noncombustible Particulate Solids.
  • NFPA 652 Standard on Combustible Dust Fundamentals.
  • NFPA 654 Standard for the Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions from the Manufacturing, Processing, and Handling of Combustible Particulate Solids.
