Explosion Safety Workshops Will Be Presented At The New Chem Show

Fike, a provider of pressure relief and explosion protection safety solutions, is sponsoring two workshops at the New Chem Show 2009 in New York, NY.

The workshops will both be presented Nov. 18. The first workshop -- Axius: The Most Advanced in Rupture Disc Technology -- will be held at 1 p.m.

“The Fike Axius rupture disc is like nothing else available on the market today,” says Michael Zitariuk, Fike's global product manager – Pressure Relief. “With the tightest tolerances and highest operating ratio, the Axius disc out performs all others in the chemical industry.”

The second workshop -- Safely Venting Explosions Inside Your Facility -- will be at 3 p.m. This session will highlight applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.

“The entire explosion protection market is experiencing significant changes due to recent industry events,” says Vince Barreto, Fike's global product manager – Explosion Protection.  “Our goal in this workshop is to inform attendees of the changes in regulatory standards and explain some of the latest protection techniques.  Attendees can expect to gain valuable information about the hazards of combustible dust and the strategies necessary to protect their personnel and facilities from catastrophic explosion events.”
