If your company utilizes pneumatic conveying and air filtration systems in the manufacturing process, you are at risk from dust fires and explosions.
During the production sparks or glowing embers can easily be produced by the processing machines itself or from impurities in the conveyed material. These potential ignition sources are then picked up by the pneumatic system and transported along with highly combustible wood chips, dust or other finely divided particles. A single spark that enters fi lters, silos or the
dust collector is suffi cient to cause fi res or dust explosions resulting in excessive damage of property and costly downtimes or even worse threatens life.
A potential disaster of this magnitude is best handled with preventative measures that are immediate, effective and reliable. With the Minimax
system sparks can be detected and extinguished prior to reaching the filter or dust collector thereby protecting all company assets.
Minimax is a pioneer in the development of spark extinguishing systems. Its protection strategy has been successfully tried and tested in thousands of
