Dust from dried grain, corn, feed, and other agricultural products collects in storage bins, bucket elevators, silos, and transport containers. Under the right pressure and environmental conditions, suspended dust particles can combust and cause an explosion. The extensive and costly damage caused by explosions can devastate an operation. Even worse, they can seriously injure anyone working nearby.

Explosion venting latches help prevent catastrophic destruction by automatically releasing an opening once the pressure reaches a specific point or an explosion occurs.

Explosion Venting Latches for Farming & Agriculture

Brixon is a world-class manufacturer of pressure release safety latches for farming and agriculture. Our latches are affordable, durable, and designed for easy installation, adjustment, and operation. The simple design also makes our latches easy to clean and sanitize, which is critical in food-related applications.

Material Recommendations for Pressure Release Latches

We recommend using stainless steel or aluminum pressure release safety latches for agricultural applications. Both materials withstand exposure to outdoor elements and harsh conditions. Stainless-steel venting latches also come with an electropolished or polished, buffed, and passivated finish to improve corrosion resistance. We can also combine materials to reduce weight and cost.

Our explosion venting latches for agriculture come in release forces up to 285 lbs., depending on the model selected. Setting a lower release force allows hand-free opening of doors and covers. Always follow industry and equipment safety recommendations to sure you use the correct release for your application.
