Plant components like silos, mills, filters, collectors, mixers or dryers, in which combustible dusts or bulks are processed, conveyed or stored are hazardous where fine dust can be found in sufficient quantities. Constructive and efficient explosion protection solutions are required when ignition sources cannot be reliably removed.
With use of the Q-Bic suppression system, the starting explosion is rapidly detected by the redundant p-RED detectors before the prompt blowing of dry powder within the endangered area extinguishes the flame. The explosion is extinguished at the point of ignition and cannot be discharged to the outside atmosphere. Q-Bic is especially suitable for applications with toxicants, which must not be released in case of explosion.
