Explosion Protection Systems for Combustible Dust Hazards

Explosion isolation is designed to prevent flame propagation through pipelines and duct work to interconnected vessels or process areas. Fast acting explosion isolation valves provide a mechanical isolation solution to stop the flame fronts in their tracks. Chemical isolation systems offer an alternative with the greatest installation flexibility.

Dust explosion prevention Reducing the risk of a dust

Dust Explosion Prevention A dust cloud of flammable concentration can be produced in industry either by design or by chance. For example, lean-phase pneumatic transfer systems handling flammable dust have an almost continual dust cloud present. In processes such as the filling and emptying of dust containers a dust cloud of flammable concentration is produced transiently.
