Explosion prevention | Process

FARINART

Application

Multi-grain flour preparation

Milling, molding, crushing and sieving processes of grain and flour,

The storage of flour is prepared inside the plant in metal silos; fugitive emissions must be controlled to reduce dust and eliminate the risk of a second explosion (dust explosion).

Objectives

  • Explosion safety diagnosis of the equipments and existing buildings; proposition of security solutions and procedures to implement
  • Risk management associated with combustible dust
  • Setting of electrical classification conditions (plants)

Challenges Resolved

Control of explosive hazards in the plant (combustible dusts) | Explosion prevention by the principle of “performance based design” | Compliance with current regulations (ROHS, NFPA) | Maximizing the use of existing equipment (cost saving)
