Carbon loading polypropylene to prevent electrostatic discharge in ATEX environments 06 February 2024

To avoid electrostatic discharge, plastics used in explosive fume extraction systems that move air, or are situated in an area where potentially hazardous fume are present, must be electrically conductive or static dissipative. The most effective way of dissipating electrostatic discharge is to add conductive carbon black to the polymer matrix....

Ventilation & Dilution of Hydrogen Leaks with IIC Hydrogen Exhaust Fans 02 January 2024

Hydrogen is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas, therefore small gaseous leaks are difficult to detect by human senses. Small leaks are common due to the small size of hydrogen molecules and usually do not present a problem since the tiny amount of mixture will not be enough to cause a flammable mixture in the air. Small amounts of leaking hydrogen will rise and diffuse quickly in air because of its low density resulting in high buoyancy (it’s 14 times less dense than air)....

The importance of auto ignition temperatures in ATEX fan selection 08 August 2023

ATEX protection is all centred around preventing an explosion from happening when there is a presence of combustible dust or flammable gas, this means considering all potential ignition sources. When looking at sources, most people will look for sparks and flames as an obvious risk, but the gas or dust properties themselves are an important aspect to protect against....

ATEX explosion protection & ignition properties of hydrogen gas 06 June 2023

Hydrogen technologies are undergoing a significant period of growth as their widespread introduction is planned in the energy generation and production industries. Those of you with the knowledge of the properties and flammability of hydrogen will recognise that hazards due to explosive atmospheres must be assessed more and more frequently as the element is utilised, and, if necessary, appropriate protective measures must be taken....

Reducing mechanical sparks & friction explosions with permissible material pairings for ATEX fans 02 May 2023

Mechanical sparks and friction are one of the most common causes of ignition of flammable gases and dust clouds. Accident statistics in Germany indicate that mechanical sparks and friction as an ignition source occurred in 32.7% of incidents. Billange (1979) presented an overview of 66 incidents where gases and vapour were ignited by frictional ignition....
