Explosion Protection

- reliably control hazards

Explosive mixtures of substances with air occur in all industries processing flamable liquids, gases or dusts. The hazards of these mixtures have to be determined and assessed by the plant operator prior to the commissioning (e.g. HAZOP). Explosion protection of plants within the process industries is the basis for safe plant operations and achieved by the following:

  • avoidance of explosive conditions

  • avoidance of  ignition sources

  • the so called constructional explosion protection (safe enclosure, controlled venting or suppression of an explosion)

With our long-standing experience we support you with the concept of the measures for a protection of your plants against explosions. On your behalf we provide the explosion protection document which is a minimum requirement from the European workplace health and safety directive. With this the proof is led that – in short – an explosion protection concept was set up and implemented. If the safety-related data relevant for the explosion protection are not available we can determine them in our laboratory for atmospheric conditions (from 0.8 to 1.1 bar and from -20 to 60 °C) as well as for non-atmospheric conditions in our labs  („STK").
