You need Explosion Suppression


In an explosion suppression system, dynamic rate of rise or static
pressure sensors are used to detect pressure buildup due to combustion
and via the control panel activating suppressant bottles containing
sodium bicarbonate, injecting suppressant into the airstream, cooling
the temperature of the combustion fireball and reducing the explosion
pressure.


You need Flameless Explosion Venting


Many at-risk industrial process equipment, including dust collectors,
process vessels, duct/piping networks, and industrial structures have
been protected with explosion venting. Where applicable, explosion
vents, also referred to as explosion panels and explosion relief
panels, are a viable means to release pressure and flame propagation
of a dust explosion.

You need Explosion Isolation


Whichever explosion protection components are installed it is
important to remember periodic inspections are required per NFPA Code.
Refer to the applicable NFPA Code or ask us at SysTech and we’ll give
you the information you need to be sure you’re covered.


You need Preventative Maintenance


Maintenance is the backend of capital equipment purchases. It’s
required and the better it’s addressed on a periodic basis, the longer
expected equipment life and the greater your uninterrupted production.
That said, every facility has a different allocation of maintenance
staff and skill sets. SysTech has long recognized that maintenance
departments appreciate the up-front support we offer with the
equipment and systems we install.


Answer a couple of questions to see what Explosion Protection Devices you need.

1. Has your dust been tested, and if so, is the Kst level known?

You need Material Testing.


Dust explosion threats are a crucial concern in today’s industrial environments. The cost of dust explosion damage amounts to millions of dollars each year. Of greater concern are the lives that might be lost. If you suspect you are at risk, have your dust tested. The latest NFPA Standards, particularly NFPA 652, require a documented DHA (Dust Hazard Analysis) to be on file with your AHJ (authority having jurisdiction). We can help you with that.

2. Are there any restrictions on releasing this product into the environment?

3. Is the vessel located outside or near an outside wall?

4. Can the explosion be directed outdoors to an area free of plant personnel and pedestrians?

5. Assuming the vessels location and your application is a fit for flameless venting, is flameless venting a viable option?

6. Additional Question:

Is the product vessel connected to the building or other process related equipment via ductwork or piping?
