Dust explosion protection in Europe

Explosion hazards in agricultural industry

Enterprises in the agricultural industry process potentially explosive products of plant origin:
– Grain crops
– Feed mixtures
– Malt
– Barley
– Maize
– Seed
– Rape and others.

During reception, transport, handling and storage, large quantities of dust are released, which in a suspended state creates an explosive atmosphere. Contact of explosive dust with an effective ignition source leads to an explosion with catastrophic consequences. In enclosed areas the risk of explosion is multiplied due to confined spaces and secondary explosions, which are often even more dangerous than the initial explosion.

Explosion hazards in agricultural industry

The main technological processes associated with a potential hazard of explosive atmospheres:

– transport of bulk ingredients (elevators, pneumatic or mechanical systems);
– aspiration processes (cyclone separators, filtering systems, etc.);
– storage and dosing of bulk solids (silos, bunkers, scales, etc.);
– mechanical separation of materials and ingredients (mills, crushers, etc.).
