Are you properly protected against dust explosions?
07 November 2008
The presence of dust in industrial processes is a constant cause for concern in many manufaturing sectors. The European ATEX directives lay down firm guidelines as how to operate process plant safely. Operators are strongly advised to fit additional constructive explosion protection in plants operating with fine dusts and these measures should be undertaken in addition to explosion venting with relief panels.
Better venting protects against dust explosion
Should a dust explosion occur, its pressure is reduced to a harmless level within in the plant. ‘Ex-Go-Vent’ explosion relief panels from Rembe of Germany eliminate all such operational problems. Approved to FSA 04 ATEX 1538X, their patented design guarantees durability and long working life under all production conditions.
Processes that generate fine dusts such as a flour mills, wood processing plants, animal feed compounders, sugar processing, fuel handling plants are typical applications for the Ex-Go-Vent explosion relief panels. Combining the user benefits of full plant availability and simplified installation with considerable cost savings, these flat single-layer panels also give 100% venting efficiency.
Quick and easy mounting is ensured by a patented concept of combined gasket and breaking point configuration that eliminates the need to control the clamping torque of the fixing bolts that is required by other manufacturers.
