Our team has successful experience of explosion protection for tanks, aspiration and pneumatic conveying systems in food processing plants. You can find out more about our projects in the PROJECTS section.
Food processing plants use raw materials of plant origin which are subject to explosion hazards and require explosion protection measures.
A significant segment of combustible dust incidents occur at:
- sugar factories,
- flour mills,
- production lines of food products whose ingredients include flour, sugar, coffee, tea, rice, cereals, spices, milk powder, starch, malt, etc.
During the process, particles of bulk solids are atomised in the air and create a dust/air mixture with explosive concentrations of combustible dust.An ignition source in the vicinity of such an explosive mixture leads to an explosion which can have a destructive effect on equipment and pose a health risk to employees.
The main technological processes associated with a potential explosive hazard:
- transport of bulk ingredients (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.).
