INDUSTRIAL EXPLOSION PROTECTION FOR CHEMICAL PROCESSING FACILITIES

SHARESHARESHARE
Industrial explosions present a serious risk to any company that manufactures or handles combustible dust and vapors, including chemical manufacturing facilities.  An ignition of a dust or vapor cloud in process equipment can not only destroy the primary vessel but also propagate to interconnected equipment and into the plant, causing secondary explosions with devastating results. This presentation will discuss how explosions initiate and propagate, the types of processes and process equipment most commonly exposed to deflagrations, electrostatic ignition threat, and control, and the various methods of deflagration protection that can be employed to protect chemical processing facilities against explosions, including explosion suppression, venting, and isolation.
