Usually, tests include:
- Laboratory analysis of dust to determine parameters such as degree of dispersion, humidity, smouldering temperature, ignition temperature, etc.
- A series of experimental explosions in the blasting chamber
Laboratory testing of the dust is necessary to determine the ignitability and combustibility characteristics appropriate to the particular type of dust handled in the production site. These characteristics are used in the risk analysis of explosive dust atmosphere formation and are the basis for the selection of explosion protection technical solutions.
We will arrange sampling and delivery of dust samples to the laboratory
We will define all the characteristics of combustible dust
We will conduct a series of experimental dust explosions
We will provide a dust explosion hazard report and give recommendations on risk reduction
Due to our cooperation with leading Russian and foreign research institutes in the field of explosion safety, we can offer you to submit dust samples from production for testing and determining the explosion hazard of the substance handled specifically at your production site.
Laboratory tests determine the limits of flame propagation through air suspension – the main parameter that affects the explosion hazard of dust circulating within the technological process.
Sampling of dust
Delivery of dust samples to the laboratory
Characterization of combustible dust
Conducting experimental dust explosions to confirm characteristics and parameters
Providing a dust explosion hazard report with recommendations on risk reduction
For a specific dust sample these parameters are determined in a special blasting chamber, for which a series of experimental explosions is carried out.
If necessary, testing of the dust mixture can be carried out on the basis of testing ground of RSBP Company, Czech Republic.
ATEX.CENTER is the official partner of RSBP Company (Czech Republic) – manufacturer of explosion protection systems
We provide support on any issues of explosion protection of technological equipment and are always ready to offer a solution
our engineers are certified specialists in the field of explosion protection systems operation and maintenance
Focus on clients
Development of individual technical solutions, flexible terms and reasonable pricing policy
This feature set is sufficient for a full risk assessment and selection of explosion protection equipment. If necessary, the list of studied characteristics can be expanded.
Your production uses substances capable to form a dust atmosphere (flour, sugar, milk powder, starch, coal or wood dust, etc.?)
