High-Speed Abort Gate – Safety & Compliance Made Easy

Sparks, flames and smoke can occur during the conveying process of combustible materials such as paper dust, wood dust, plastics, pharmaceuticals and various metal dusts.

Regulations and enforcement by any local authority having Jurisdiction or commonly referred to as the “AHJ” for combustible dust explosion hazards have increased over the past years. In most cases the authority having jurisdiction will refer to the NFPA Codes and Standard for Dust Collection and combustible dusts. Dust Collection System handling combustible dusts require additional safety features, these can include High Speed Abort Gates.

A High Speed Abort Gate is located in the return air duct stream and is designed to divert the filtered conveying air to atmosphere in the event sparks, smoke or flames have been detected. Abort Gates are an efficient way to protect your investment and ensure you are compliant.
