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 Protection A dust explosion will occur only if a dust is dispersed in air or oxygen within the explosive range and if, at the same time, a suitable source of ignition is present. Preventative measures are aimed at avoiding the presence of either, or preferably both, these factors in the system. In many cases, however, because of the heterogeneous nature of dust clouds and the ...
