High Speed Abort Gate

  • Model #EM-HSAG


EcoMAXX™ High Speed Abort Gates Engineered With TRIPLE SECURITY to Exceed National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Safety Requirements!

Are you investigating dust collection fire and explosion protection systems for an industrial production facility, workshop, factory, or any other dust-producing industry? Don’t forget: NFPA requires the use of an abort gate when potentially hazardous, combustible, and volatile filtered air is returned to a building or workspace.

At Boss Products, our High Speed Abort Gates are designed for installation in baghouse amp; dust collector return air systems. They automatically vent harmful gases into the atmosphere, should a fire or explosion occur.

EcoMAXX™ High Speed Abort Gates Are Activated By:

  • High pressure amp; without electrical signal
  • Electronic spark detection signals
  • Rapid temperature increases in the clean air duct plenum

An EcoMAXX™ High Speed Abort Gate is an essential SAFETY SMART component in any dust collection and combustible dust mitigation solution.

Where are your High Speed Abort Gates manufactured?

All of Boss Products High Speed Abort Gates are made in Italy by AirCom Srl, a longtime partner of Boss Products. We are the exclusive North American importer and distributor for these High Speed Abort Gates and market them under our EcoMAXX™ tradename.

Are the High Speed Abort Gates NFPA compliant?

Yes, when installed with a listed spark detection system such as the EcoMAXX™ Spark Detection and Extinguishing System, our High Speed Abort Gates are NFPA compliant. In many cases, a fire can occur without a substantial explosion and it is critical that it is diverted before entering the building. It is important that you are familiar with NFPA 652, NFPA 654 and your industry or process specific guidelines such as NFPA 61, NFPA 91, NFPA 484 and/or NFPA 664.

Why is Triple Security Protection Important?

Boss Products Triple Security Protection was invented to provide an unprecedented level of protection and safety to return air systems for dust collectors collecting flammable and combustible dust.

The NFPA requires that all High Speed abort gates be activated by a spark detection system. Spark Detection systems employ multiple infrared sensors to detect sparks and or burning embers. When a spark is detected, a signal is sent to the High Speed Abort Gate to automatically close and divert.

Overpressure activation comes standard on all units and is an integral feature to the High Speed Abort Gate design.

In the event of a failure in the electronic signal from the spark detection system, the abort gate will still be activated by an excessive pressure wave. Rapid temperature activation utilizes a series of thermal monitoring probes mounted inside the dust collector. Thermal probes catch an event in the very early stages of a rapid temperature rise and automatically activate the abort gate as well as any suppression system that may be installed.

I have technical questions about your High Speed Abort Gates. Can you answer them?

Yes! At Boss Products, our team has over 50 years of hands-on industrial experience designing, crafting, installing, implementing, and maintaining thousands of dust collection systems. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you have about our High Speed Abort Gates or other EcoMAXX™ products.
