When a combustible material, an ignition source and atmospheric oxygen collide in a confined space, the result is an explosion. Preventative explosion protection measures aim to stop this potentially lethal mixture from occurring. However, in practice, the vast number of potential ignition sources alone almost always makes this impossible. Consequently, the most important steps industrial companies can take for explosion protection purposes are protection measures that minimize the damage caused by an explosion. Industrial plants must always be protected against the consequences of explosions to ensure that employees are safe and production can be resumed quickly. After all, every hour of lost production costs money. In most cases, explosion protection can be provided cost-effectively through explosion venting and explosion suppression.
We would be happy to show you solutions tailored to your processes that will reduce the damage caused by an explosion to a negligible level – enabling you to resume production quickly after an explosion.
