Dust explosion protection in Europe

The flammability of wood pulp, pulp, paper, cardboard makes wood processing and pulp and paper industries some of the most explosive. Equipment in such plants has ideal conditions for explosions:

- Flammable wood dust;
- Oxygen;
- Source of rapid ignition (surfaces heated by friction, overheated bearings, static electricity discharges, electric welding work, metal parts falling on machines, etc.).





Explosive dust atmospheres can form in various woodworking production lines. An explosion can occur both in the area where the wood is processed and during material transport, e.g. on screw and belt conveyors. Explosive dust/air atmosphere is also generated during:

- Discharge of wood waste from woodworking plants;

- Grinding of wood products;

- Crushing and grinding of raw materials.


The greatest risk of explosion in such plants is associated with aspiration systems where explosive concentrations of combustible dusts are constantly observed. Depending on the nature of the organic dust and the configuration of the process equipment, different explosion protection systems for aspiration systems can be selected.

  • Suppressing an explosion by early detection of an explosion and introducing an explosive suppressant into the equipment (HRD system).
  • Explosion suppression is the prevention of explosion propagation between connected pieces of equipment by introducing an explosive suppressant into the piping (HRD barrier).

  • Release of explosion by means of a device for releasing overpressure and explosion products into the environment - explosion vent (VMP explosion vent panels, FLEX flame arresters).
  • Explosion cut-off valve, triggered by overpressure and air flow and shutting off the piping between the connected pieces of equipment (B-flap).

Our team has a proven track record in explosion protection for aspiration systems in wood processing plants. You can find out more about our projects in the PROJECTS section.
