Get To Know About Explosion Protection with Ventilation Ducts

  • August 14, 2021

Indoor installation components can not only be protected by blast holes. Dust and fire escaping from ships pose a major threat to the safety of employees and the facility itself. Secondary explosions due to dust emitted in the first explosion are just one example. 

Flameless venting ducts are often used to channel pressure waves and flames from explosions to outdoor areas. This solution prevents process-optimized system design.

The longer the ventilation duct, the stronger the duct and the installation itself and the higher the associated costs. The reason: the further away the explosion is from the source, the greater the pressure that the line and installation must withstand.

Economical solution:- With flameless ventilation, the flame in the flame absorbing screen is cooled quickly and efficiently and is extinguished immediately. Without the flame and pressure wave, it wouldn't come out of the container. Production plants can now be designed in such a way as to create optimal process conditions. 

The distinctive pressure and sound waves in the production hall were also reduced to almost imperceptible. The filter design ensures no flammable or combustible material. This not only reduces the consequences of explosions, but also offers the highest level of protection for employees.

Advantages of fireless ventilation:- Fireless ventilation of rooms sends expensive protective systems with complex ventilation ducts into the history books. Companies can focus again on optimizing their process and system designs for maximum efficiency. This form of fire and dust-free ventilation is the safest and most cost-effective solution for indoor use.
