Activities of group “explosion protection”

  • working on case studies which are based on realistic plants, e.g. prevent dust explosion in a mill – similar process steps are found in many plants.
  • working on specific modules of complex systems like product feeding, storage and product discharge, grinding/crushing, drying, filling and packaging.
  • considering new technologies and trends like IoT with impact on sensor technologies.
  • collecting examples and knowledge about explosion incidents.

 

Previous publications were related to explosion protection of individual equipment and machines. Now the group is working on a new approach to consider individual modules and process steps of complex manufacturing systems as shown in the picture below:

 
This project group is part of the joint working group “explosion protection” of our ISSA-Section MSS and the ISSA-Chemistry Section.

The project group of the Chemistry Section is dealing with ignition sources; elaboration of "fact sheets" regarding green energy (for example wood pellets, fermentation gas arrangement, hydrogen), revision of the EU-27 brochure on explosion protection.
