Explosive atmospheres – a potential risk

Dusts are generated from food processing, such as baking flour, soup powder, spices, flavorings, sugar, are explosive substances. They could pose safety risks to both the plant and employees. 

Keep the workplace clean 

The first and most important step is to minimize the occurrence of potentially explosive dust or powder by keeping the workplace clean and tidy. Nederman offers a wide range of industrial cleaning solutions from simple, light suction appliances to heavy duty, high capacity equipment. 

Use approved equipment

Sparks and static discharges can easily start an explosion. By using machines and production equipment with enclosed electronic systems and adequate earthing, risks can be reduced. 
The Nederman ATEX-approved extraction arms, fans and filters are specially designed to ensure safe and efficient removal of hazardous fumes, vapours and dust.

Minimize the effects of the explosion

Risks and explosion effects can be minimized by installing the extraction equipment in a safe and correct way. This can be obtained, for example, by enclosing the equipment, or locating it in areas remote from the explosive environment. Nederman has wide experience of providing suitable solutions. These include extraction equipment complete with safety devices that prevent the spread of fires and widespread damage.
