Explosion protection equipment can provide reliable engineered solutions to combustible dust explosion hazards in material handling and processing systems. However, explosion protection equipment is not one size fits all! Through guided discussion and real examples, you'll explore how NOT to apply explosion protection. Misapplied, under-maintained or altered explosion protection equipment can give a false sense of security for explosion safety, which can lead to serious consequences. Topics covered include:

  • Common misconceptions and grey areas relating to explosion safety and compliance with the NFPA standards
  • Considerations for protection solutions
  • How qualified persons can ensure compliance and reliability
