Dust Hazard conditions trigger hundreds of explosions every year that injure and kill and cause billions of dollars in damages. However, these dust explosion accidents can be controlled and thereby limiting the potential for serious injuries or death, while reducing the damage to expensive process equipment.
Dust hazard conditions occur during conveying, processing, pulverizing and storage of a wide range of materials. Materials such as Aluminum, Cellulose, Charcoal, Corn, Floor, Fungicides, Grain, Milk Powders, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics, Resin, Starch, Sugar and others, under the right conditions, can and will explode.
When it comes to handling potential explosions from a dust hazard during product processing, there are three primary types of explosion prevention systems: Venting, Isolation and Suppression.
To reduce or prevent dust hazard conditions from becoming an explosive event, IEP Technologies provides a wide range of systems like a dust collector protection system. In a typical Dust Collector application an explosion venting system would contain the following basic components: Explosion Relief Vent Panel, Pressure Detector, Single Zone Control Panel, Isolation Extinguisher and a Rotary Gate Valve.
