The greatest risk of explosion in such plants is associated with aspiration systems where explosive concentrations of combustible dusts are constantly observed. Depending on the nature of the organic dust and the configuration of the process equipment, different explosion protection systems for aspiration systems can be selected.
ACTIVE EXPLOSION PROTECTION
- Suppressing an explosion by early detection of an explosion and introducing an explosive suppressant into the equipment (HRD system).
- Explosion suppression is the prevention of explosion propagation between connected pieces of equipment by introducing an explosive suppressant into the piping (HRD barrier).
PASSIVE EXPLOSION PROTECTION
- Release of explosion by means of a device for releasing overpressure and explosion products into the environment - explosion vent (VMP explosion vent panels, FLEX flame arresters).
- Explosion cut-off valve, triggered by overpressure and air flow and shutting off the piping between the connected pieces of equipment (B-flap).
Our team has a proven track record in explosion protection for aspiration systems in wood processing plants. You can find out more about our projects in the PROJECTS section.
