IDA (In-Line Deflagration Arrester)
The CMAXX, along with the proprietary IDA (In-Line Deflagration Arrester) DeltaMAXX filters, has been PROVEN to isolate a deflagration and stop a flame front.
Third party testing of the CMAXX shows explosive flame front being forced through the vent.
With the explosion vent covered, 100% of the flame front was forced through the IDA DeltaMAXX filters. No spark or flame present.
The CMAXX Advantage
Other similar systems have been tested, but all require additional after filters. Combining the CMAXX with IDA DeltaMAXX filters eliminates the need for expensive after filters that can prematurely blind, causing issues including:
- High pressure drop
- Increased filter expenses
- Additional labor to install
- Decreased headroom for indoor applications
- Enlarged filter housings
In addition, the IDA DeltaMAXX filters work off of the same primary cleaning system that the CMAXX uses, ensuring that the filters are consistently cleaned during operation. Similar systems that use after filters do not have any means to online cleaning.
The results conform to NFPA 69 22.214.171.124 Static Dry Flame Arrester Designs and chapter 5 under performance based option, both NFPA 654 to prevent the “extension of the flame front outside the compartment or equipment of origin except where intentionally vented to a safe location” 5.2.5 (2) and NFPA 69 “to limit and risk of flame spread from vessel to vessel via interconnecting ducts” 5.2.4 (3), 5.2.5 (2).
