How does an explosion Occur? It’s simple. A deflagration explosion requires five elements; fuel including bulk material or clouds of fine particles, oxygen, dispersion, ignition and a confined space. If all of these elements are brought together, the potential for an explosion in your plant exists. It’s more common than you might think. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), between 2011 and 2015, municipal fire departments in the United States responded to an average of 39,910 industrial and manufacturing fires. 

And, several industries are at risk. Manufacturers and processors of the following industries should implement explosion protection:

  • Plastics
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Wood & paper
  • Powdered metals
  • Paint & pigments
  • Aerosols & vapors
  • Chemicals
  • Energy and power
  • Food and grain
  • And more

Does your facility require commercial explosion protection? Hard Fire is here to help. Depending on the type of facility, several configurations of explosion protection systems can be used, including explosion venting, explosion suppression and explosion isolation. Along with our partner IEP Technologies, Hard Fire can help you design the right system for your unique facility.
