The flammability of wood pulp, pulp, paper, cardboard places the woodworking and pulp and paper industries among the most explosible. At such enterprises equipment operates under ideal conditions for an explosion:

- Combustible wood dust;
- Oxygen;
- An ignition sources (surfaces heated by friction, overheating of bearings, discharges of static electricity, electric welding, ingress of metal elements in machines, etc.).

Hazardous dust explosive atmosphere can be formed on various lines of woodworking industries. An explosion can occur both in the area where wood is being processed, and during the transportation of materials, for example, on screw and belt conveyors.

Dust air explosive atmosphere is also formed during:

– woodworking waste consignment;
– wooden products polishing;
– raw materials crushing and granulating.

 

The highest risk of explosion at such industries is connected with dust-collection exhaust systems, where explosive concentrations of combustible dust are constantly observed.

Depending on the nature of organic dust and the configuration of technological equipment, different options for explosion protection systems and their component parts can be selected.

ACTIVE EXPLOSION PROTECTION SYSTEM

Explosion suppression by early detection of an explosion and the introduction of fire extinguisher into the equipment (HRD system)
Explosion isolation – prevention of explosion propagation between related pieces of equipment by introducing the fire extinguisher into pipelines (HRD barrier)

PASSIVE EXPLOSION PROTECTION SYSTEM

Explosion venting using a device for relieving excess pressure and explosion products into the environment – an explosion vent (VMP explosion venting panels, FLEX flameless explosion venting devices).
Explosion isolation with a valve actuated by overpressure and air flow and blocking the pipeline between related pieces of equipment (B-flap).
