The Interceptor-BD (Blast Deflector) is an accessory to CV Technology explosion or deflagration vents. It is designed to deflect the flame ball exhaust and reduce the safety area near explosion vents.
Explosion or deflagration vents exhaust a flame ball during a deflagration. That flame ball can extend to distances in excess of 60 feet (18 m) which requires a very large safety zone. Safety zones can limit the accessibility to process area or create limitation in the layout of process equipment. The I-BD is designed to direct the flame ball exhaust from occupied areas and thereby moving the safety zone.
