Explosion safety of bulk material plants

Explosion safety of bulk material plants

The use of complex systems and installations requires a suitable risk assessment for each individual explosion risk. A modular structure has been developed for the explosion safety of bulk solids systems, which makes it easier to divide the assessment for a system regarding the explosion risk into smaller units, so-called “modules”.

In addition to a clear layout, this enables a targeted and process-oriented approach. The overall concept consists of these modules:

  • Explosion characteristics
  • Raw material reception – dust-explosive products are accepted as loose bulk material or packed
  • Storage – flammable and dust-explosive bulk materials are stored in halls, bunkers, and containers,
  • Processing
  • Packaging

Individual process steps or machines can thus be better evaluated. In the end, only the individual interfaces need to be considered to obtain the overall risk assessment concept.
