Innovation is our lifeblood, we find it exciting to develop technically and economically viable solutions to problems where no off-the-shelf provisions are available. We love to think outside the box and work with competent people from other industries. Blending expertise and perspective increases the chance to find new and better ways of dealing with a challenging situation.
Here are a few examples of such projects:
Venting domes for a manufacturing plant: trustworthy performance and quality
A major company was looking for a venting solution to protect their projected manufacturing facility against the impacts of potential gas explosions. The pressure was to be released upwards, but the roof did not provide sufficient space for the required vent area.
Since no satisfactory solution was found on the market, rexotec designed several hexagonal cylindrical 'venting domes' with vertically mounted blow-out flaps on each side specifically for this purpose. This approach made it possible to accommodate a much larger vent area on the limited surface of the roof.
Design and FEM evidence
FEM modelling was used in the design of the domes and the effectiveness of the solution was later confirmed through simulation studies performed by a renowned German research institute.
Manufacturing and installation
Our excellent manufacturing and installation quality is based on close coordination with clients and permanent monitoring of all stages of the work progress. This helps avoid mistakes, which, particularly in major projects, can lead to delays and significant costs later.
Delivery and acceptance
Thanks to our excellent logistics service, all venting domes arrived at the building site in time, preassembled and ready to be cast into the reinforced concrete ceiling.
Of course we provide detailed documentation.
Further benefits of the venting domes
The venting domes represent an economically attractive option for many types of industrial installations, as they can be tailored to individual needs.
Silo retrofits and upgrades
We upgrade existing silos or silo installations for explosive materials, converting them into future-proof storage facilities which meet statutory requirements.
Following a general review of the present condition and risk assessment, we also check currently installed accessories such as discharge systems, filtration equipment or level indicators, as required, and develop a comprehensive concept for the upgrade (including cost estimation, detailed task and time schedule, installation by qualified personnel).
Safe upwards venting: the silo roof consisting of several elements tightly bolted together, with built-in blow-out flaps, has proved its worth in almost ten years. It is customized for each application and equipped with walk-on blow-out flaps.
Due to the integrated blow-out flaps, a silo strength up to pred = 1.5 barg can be achieved.
A stainless steel explosion diverter with integrated blow-out flaps was designed for a client in Thailand.
