Flamless Vent in Action

25 ms

Pressure rise from a deflagration opens the explosion vent allowing the dust and flame to enter the flameless vent

90 ms

The flame from the deflagration makes contact with the flameless vent mesh and the quenching process begins

200 ms

The deflagration is fully quenched and begins to contract as pressure is relieved and flame is retained

500 ms

As the hot gases cool the flameless vent allows cool air to flow and the explosion is mitigated safely
