 Frequently Asked Questions

Are EcoMAXX™ Explosion Vents NFPA compliant?

NFPA 68, Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting, provides the standard for the design, installation, and maintenance of deflagration vents and related components.  NFPA compliance is dependent on a multitude of design factors such as the explosivity of the combustible dust and the vessel type construction and characteristics.  Boss Products engineers will size and recommend the explosion vents to the most current NFPA standards

Are the EcoMAXX™ Explosion Vents 3rd party tested and certified?

All EcoMAXX™ EM-XV Explosion vents are third party tested and certified to ATEX en14797 /  CE 2049 EUM1 11 ATEX 0592 II GD.  

Are the Explosion Vents reusable?

No. The Overpressure from an explosion breaks the vent at predetermined points to safely relieve the deflagration without fragmentation.

How many Explosion Vents will my system need?

In accordance with NFPA 68, Boss Products engineers will gladly size and recommend the required deflagration venting specific to your application.

At Boss Products, our policy is to ship all standard products in 6 weeks (often much faster in most cases). Most Explosion Vents and other fire and explosion isolation devices will ship anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks after we receive your order.
