Explosion Protection in Industrial Plants
Explosive atmospheres usually occur in process engineering equipment such as filters, silos, elevators, mixers, and mills. In the event of internal or external ignition sources, an explosion could develop inside the equipment as well as propagate throughout the connecting components. Explosion protection is designed to reduce the effects of an explosion and is the most effective way to properly protect a process. The explosion protective measures include conventional explosion venting using explosion vents, flameless venting, explosion isolation, and chemical suppression. With so many options, what is the best choice for a given application? Here are a few examples of how and when to apply these protection devices.
The who, what, when and why of Dust Hazards Analysis
Many industrial facilities handle combustible particulate material which pose fire and explosion hazards. Managing combustible dust hazards is critical to ensure the safety of the plant personnel and operations. In order to effectively manage combustible dust hazards they must first be identified and understood.
