Application

DOMTAR-2

In the pulp and paper industry, handling and processing of wood chips is causing emission of fine dust and particles that are combustible and explosive. Effective control is necessary to prevent fugitive emissions and excessive dust and eliminate the risk of a second explosion (explosive dusts)

Objectives

  • Control of the factory dust accumulation
  • Risk management associated with combustible dust
  • Explosion preventions and protection on the equipments

Challenges Resolved

Control of the explosive hazards in the plant (combustible dust – wood)

Transition to vacuum cleaning methods | Review of the organization of the maintenance

Compliance with current regulations (ROHS, NFPA)
