The Interceptor®-VE® is an NFPA 69 compliant isolation pinch valve solution to prevent the propagation of a deflagration in a duct or pipeline. The Interceptor®-VE® is an NFPA 69 compliant valve with a natural rubber bladder that inflates with the release of compressed air from high speed solenoid valves, instantaneously closing the valve.
Upon receiving a signal from a pressure detector, optical detector, or explosion vent the Interceptor®-VE® valve is designed to rapidly close. The medium for actuation is plant-compressed air stored in a tank on the valve to ensure the fastest response possible under any plant conditions. With little vendor support required and no protrusion into the duct, the Interceptor®-VE® is ideal for almost any system, including pneumatic conveying systems, dust collection systems, cyclones, mills, and storage vessels.
