Explosion Safety for mixers
Whether a mixer should be protected against the risk of a combustible dust explosion depends on the properties and specifications of the respective mixer, including:
- The speed of the stirrer
- The possibility of completely eliminating ignition sources, e.g. mechanical sparks, electronic charges, hot surfaces, glowing embers
In addition, links to other parts of the process and the type of connection are important factors for the safety design of mixers. Contact REMBE® safety experts for more information.
The overall picture counts:
The protection of individual system components is only as good as the protection of the entire system. To insure you have a safe and economical Explosion Safety plan, your total system must be examined and protected.
Pay particular attention that there are sufficient isolation devices. Also, guard against “over engineering”.
We offer you comprehensive protection plans and on-site consulting, so you can implement organizational measures to achieve a greater degree of safety.
