Directed Combustible Dust Explosion Pressure Venting Protects Plant Workers

Dec. 16, 2013
System limits the opening angle of an explosion panel.

Traffic routes in and around manufacturing facilities must be carefully considered when planning and implementing combustible dust explosion venting to the outside with conventional explosion panels. Consideration must also be given those to areas that are accessible to plant employees and work stations and specialty measures must be implemented. 

With conventional explosion venting, the pressure wave and flame blast must be deflected or explosion panels must be installed such that there is large scale clearance around the area that could be affected by such a pressure wave and blast. Either option could prove quite costly, depending on the application, resulting in a severe loss of usable area or the need for implementation of more costly solutions such as indoor flameless venting systems .
