Blue Springs, MO – July 14, 2015 – Fike Corporation announces the addition of two new types of vents to their explosion vent product lines. The round Sani-VA sanitary vent and the CV-S High Vacuum vent.

The Sani-VA® sanitary explosion vent is ideal for demanding “clean” applications.

“Fike has developed a leak proof, crevice free design that exceeds CIP/SIP (clean in place, steam in place) application needs. The Sani-VA® explosion vent is designed to be NFPA 68 compliant and has 3A, EHEDG and ATEX certifications,” explained Stephen Clegg, Fike Explosion Protection Product Manager. “The smooth transition between the membrane and the seal provide for an ideal sanitary explosion venting solution,” concluded Clegg.

The CV-S High Vacuum explosion vent is Fike’s best performing vent under extreme vacuum conditions.

“The CV-S High Vacuum explosion vent provides superior protection in applications such as air-material separation, drying, conveyance and processing operations. High vacuum conditions exist in many types of applications and the new CV-S High Vacuum explosion vent is an ideal solution for high vacuum and pulsating/cyclic process conditions,” said Carson Stephens, Fike Explosion Protection Product Specialist. “The CV-S High Vacuum is built to exceed the NFPA 68 standard,” concluded Stephens.
