We provide explosion protection for power plants processing coal and biomass. The areas inside and outside of coal handling plants generating heat and electricity are potential operating facilities where explosive concentrations of coal dust can accumulate and under ominous conditions (the presence of an ignition source, optimal concentration of suspended dust and oxygen) lead to a subsequent explosion in the facility.
The consequences of an industrial dust explosion or fire are unthinkable - worker injury, loss of life, property damage, business interruption, and irreversible environmental harm. Few companies realize how many diverse and common industrial applications produce combustible particulates, or where in their facilities this catastrophic threat is settling. What is a combustible dust? “A combustible particulate solid that presents a fire or deflagration hazard when suspended in air or other oxidizing medium...
We provide explosion protection for wood processing factories where wood waste and dust pose a hazard. Various wood processing technologies show that flammable wood waste or dust accumulates in these facilities. In terms of evaluating the risk of explosion, finely sedimented dust is hazardous and in the event that this finely sedimented dust suspends and is connected to an ignition source, and explosion will occur.
We protect against explosions in plants that process bulk material. In the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, bulk materials are processed that have specific explosive characteristics. Small dust particles are released from these materials or substances into the air during the course of processing industrial production. With the movement of air, these particles become suspended in the air and can easily reach explosive concentrations. A dangerous explosion can occur when such a dust cloud comes into contact...
We protect food processing plants against explosions. Bulk materials (flour, sugar, coffee, tea, rice, cereals,…) processed in the food industry have specific explosive characteristics. These bulk materials release fine particles into the air while being processed. These particles swirl during the course of air movement and can easily reach explosive concentrations. A dangerous explosion can occur when such a dust cloud comes into contact with an effective ignition source. The risk of explosion therefore...

Where protection from flash fire and explosive dust exposure is required, Arvind PRO1 products can help Saveprecious human lives. The mining environment creates a number of unique hazards including heat stress, greatly affecting operator motor skills and static electricity which could ignite an environment mixed with air and explosive mining dust.
Macrotek has designed and supplied systems for many different applications in the food sector including sugar, starch, corn, sugar cane and rendering. A common challenge in many of these industries is the collection and treatment of explosive dust. Baghouses were the primary technology for particulate clean up, however, recent major incidents and explosions in these industries, particularly sugar handling, have resulted in a review and change in dust system collection design and strategy. Macrotek is an experienced...
