All of this takes place passively and automatically governed by the laws of physics, there is no reliance on any electromechanical processes, to achieve this result.
The Interceptor®-QV® uses a patented system where a differential pressure switch continuously monitors the pressure drop across the mesh cartridge, alerting operators if buildup of dust occurs on the mesh. The pressure drop monitoring system on the Interceptor®-QV® gives facility operators peace of mind, knowing that the condition and status of the mesh cartridge is continuously monitored assuring them of passive protection. Another patented feature of the Interceptor®-QV® is an integrated thermocouple, which when exposed to the intense heat of a deflagration will indicate, via relay, that the system has been involved in an event.
Thermal sensing and signaling - monitoring to let you know if the unit has seen flame or a deflagration.
Replaceable mesh cartridge - removable mesh cartridge for easy maintenance without removing the device from the process.
Passive - no moving parts and no maintenance
Stainless Steel Mesh
The quenching cartridge is composed of stainless steel mesh, which absorbs energy to extinguish the deflagration.✖
Connections for the tubes that connect back to the pressure differential switch
Gives an accurate readout of the temperature being sensed by the thermoouple.
