Explosion suppression systems are special technical devices which prevent the development of destructive maximum pressure by quickly introducing extinguishing agents. When an explosion is suppressed, explosion products do not spread outside the equipment or the protected area. As a result, structural integrity is not compromised and people are not harmed.
Automatic explosion suppression systems are installed in hazardous areas in accordance with the European explosion protection standard EN 1127-1. They consist of detection elements and dampers. Special sensors respond to an increase in temperature and pressure of a combustible dust/air mixture, transmit a signal to the control centre, which then initiates the injection of an explosive suppressant.
The dampers are easy to replace after use.
