NFPA Fire & Explosion Protection Equipment
At Markair Inc., we are a consultant and manufacturer’s representative servicing the Northeast Florida and South Georgia areas. Initially, we focused on the sourcing and supply of industrial ventilation and dust collection products. However, we have since expanded our product and service offerings to better accommodate our customers’ needs. We offer a range of support capabilities, including consultation, design, custom fabrication, packaging, and final construction close-out.
We are committed to delivering solutions to unique industrial problems. For example, we partner with BOSS Products, LLC to provide NFPA fire and explosion protection equipment for isolating, diverting, venting, and preventing needs within the industrial filtration and process industries.
What Is the NFPA?
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a self-funded, non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating death, injury, and property and economic loss due to fire, electrical, and relate hazards. They provide information on achieving these goals through over 300 consensus codes and standards. These requirements and restrictions are administered by approximately 8,000 volunteers from more than 250 Technical Committees and adopted by businesses across the globe.
Fire & Explosion Protection Products at Markair
Explosion Isolation & Diversion
These products are designed to keep explosions contained, so they do not spread to other equipment through interconnected pipelines. They are critical to preventing secondary explosions that could be more dangerous than the primary events. Typically, they are placed on the inlet, outlet, hopper discharge, and other interconnecting pipelines of protected vessels.
Our explosion isolation and diversion product offerings include:
- Explosion Isolation Valve EV-VF VigiFlap
- No Return Valve EM-NRV
- Float Valve EM-FV
- Explosion Diverter EV-VDIV
- Certified Rotary Valve EMVDL-RVEX-HT
- Certified Rotary Valve EMVDL-RVEX-HTS
- Certified Rotary Valve EMVDL-RVEX-MD
- Certified Rotary Valve EMVDL-RVEX-BS
Isolation valves are available in a variety of orientations and for various dust types. Diversion valves come with a range of options.
These vent panel and deflector products are designed to minimize or eliminate the impact on people and equipment caused by explosions. Vent panels are non-reusable equipment safety devices that automatically burst at a set pressure along a specific rupture line, which relieves pressure and provides a route for deflagration hazards to escape safely. Deflectors limit the degree to which vents can open and guide the explosion pressure wave, flames, and heat toward a specific direction and into a defined area.
Our explosion venting product offerings include:
- Flat Explosion Vent Panel EV-VL
- Domed Explosion Vent Panel EV-VD
- Sanitary Flat Explosion Vent Panel EV-VLSAN
- High Vacuum Domed Explosion Vent Panel EV-VD-HV
- Explosion Vent Deflector EV-VS VIGISPACE
- Flameless Explosion Vent EV-VQ
They meet all crucial health and safety requirements for an explosive atmosphere.
