    Industrial explosions present serious risk to any company that manufactures or handles combustible dusts and vapors. An ignition of a dust or vapor cloud in process equipment can not only destroy the primary vessel, but also propagate to interconnected equipment and into the plant, causing secondary explosions with devastating results. Fortunately, there are proven ways to deal with this threat. This presentation from David Grandaw of IEP Technologies will discuss how explosions initiate and propagate, the types of processes and process equipment most commonly exposed to deflagrations, explosion prevention considerations, and the various methods of deflagration protection that can be employed to protect facilities against explosions, including explosion suppression, venting and isolation.
