  • Reducing the risk of dust explosion hazards

    In the wake of recent tragic and highly publicized dust explosions, companies are asking, 'Could that happen here?' and 'What can I do to prevent such an incident at my facility?' One approach is to manage dust explosion hazards as though they were subject to OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements (29 CFR 1910.119), even though dust hazards often are not covered under this ...

  • Solidification / Immobilisation of hazardous waste for subterranean storage

    The use of subterranean salt mines for the final storage of inorganic hazardous waste is state of the art in Germany, and in fact most other European countries. However, the technical requirements to prepare the waste in an appropriate way are quite challenging. Over ten years ago econ supplied a plant to a salt mine in eastern Germany. The plant uses econ’s unique batch-wise working mixing ...

  • Vibrating feeders for stockpiling and reclaim

    The expanding applications of vibratory feeders for controlling the flow of bulk materials, and their adaptation for processing requirements, have developed considerable interest in stockpiling and reclaim systems. The general design of these units consists of a material transporting trough, or platform, driven by a vibratory force system. The flexibility and variety of designs is limited only by ...

  • Safety Systems Depend on Reliable Field Sensors (Emphasis on Fire and Gas Detectors)

    Abstract Because not all hazards are the same, identifying and quantifying the hazard is the starting point in choosing sensing technology. Not all detectors are the same, and they should be selected according to their ability to detect the hazard. This paper gives a broad summary of technologies that provide users reliable responses to hazardous conditions, that minimise false ...

  • Fires at Composting Facilities: Causes and Conditions

    The subject of fires at composting facilities is a bad news/good news situation. The bad news is that fires are more common than we realize. Ask a group of facility operators if they have had to deal with a fire, and the majority will quietly admit they have. The good news is that we don’t realize that fires are fairly common at composting facilities. Most are neither frequent nor destructive ...
