These systems enable explosions to be detected at an early stage. Only a few milliseconds later, they are suppressed with extinguishing media. The explosion therefore does not take place to its full extent. It is impossible for flames to issue from the tank or vessel.
And this makes clear yet another benefit of these systems:
With this technology, it no longer matters if the plant is set up outside or inside a building.
And the handling of hazardous and toxic substances is just as unproblematic.
If an explosion is really initiated, in contrast to more traditional methods of pressure relief no hazardous substances can issue from the tank or vessel into the environment.
