Flammable dust treatment system

Combustible Dust

First, the concept of flammable dust

Combustible dust refers to dust, fiber, or fly ash that can burn or ignite in air and form an explosive mixture with air at normal temperature and pressure.

Common flammable dusts and their types
Third, the explosion conditions

五 、 Composition of combustible dust removal system
Explosion disc (explosion-proof plate)

At the set burst pressure line, when the pressure difference between the two sides of the burst disc reaches a preset value, the burst disc will act immediately and release the fluid medium.

Flameproof valve

Prevent the explosion from spreading from the initial position to other process units, and avoid the occurrence of "secondary" explosion or system explosion accidents, thereby reducing the harm of the explosion. Explosion-proof valves are usually installed on dust collectors, cyclones, and other dust process pipes that require imported flameproofing. It can also be used in combination with flame arresters on pipes with flame arresting functions.

Flameless Drain

During normal discharge, freely emitted during an explosion, allowing flames and dust to evacuate protected equipment. When the equipment is located indoors, pipes are often used to safely transport the explosion outdoors. However, the cost of deploying larger blasting plates and piping relative to the sharply reduced release efficiency limits the practical application. Flameless venting is designed to protect people and equipment from flames and dust. In the event of an explosion, flames and dust are discharged into the device. That is, flameless venting is suitable for indoor or explosive propagation paths where there is danger to personnel.

Spark detection and extinguishing system

Apply spark detection and fire extinguishing technology to prevent possible fire and explosion hazards caused by sparks and afterburning fires propagating in the flammable dust operation system.
By detecting near-infrared energy, the presence of sparks and afterglows is detected, and then water is sprayed downstream of the detection point to extinguish the fire and afterglow.
