Blast valves, overpressure valves, and gas tight valves
Return to the home page

Blast valves are devices that mount over the air intake and air outflow pipes in a shelter. They automatically close when a high pressure wave and then the subsequent vacuum wave from a nearby detonation hits your shelter. Without blast valve protection, high pressure air will be forced through the air intake and outflow pipes into your shelter - damaging equipment, injuring or killing occupants, and delivering airborne toxins into your protected space.

Overpressure valves work with the air filter to create and maintain overpressure in your shelter. The A 803 overpressure blast valve integrates both the blast and overpressure valve in one unit.

Gas tight valves allow you to completely isolate your shelter from the outside air.

Heavy duty blast valve with high pressure rating and airflow. Installation is recommended with 8 inch wall sleeve - see below.
 
 

 

Overpressure Valve



Overpressure valve
Part number: Z 500 D
Pressure rating: not rated for blast protection
Airflow: 0 - 1,000 CMH
Price: please call for pricing

Notes:

This valve will regulate the outflow of air from your protected space. It also acts as a check valve - not letting air in.

 
 

 

Gas Tight Valves



Gas tight valves
Part number: PPV 80 I - PPV 400 I
Pressure rating: 560 PSI
Price: please call for pricing

Notes:

Designed to be installed in a 2 inch (~50mm) exhaust pipe of an engine or generator. All stainless steel construction with a temperature rating in excess of 750 F (~400 Celsius).

 

When large amounts of air have to be moved through a shelter, it is common to install an array of blast valves:
