Is your plant at risk? Wood is a particularly a very flammable material. Wood dust can ignite at a temperature from as low as 260°C!!!
The risk for fire and dust explosions in the wood panel industry has always been very high. Unfortunately as production increases, so does the risk for fire and dust explosions.
In any industry, a fire or dust explosion in Filters or Silos can have devastating consequences!
A planer is one of the largest and most important investments. Unforeseen interruptions in production due to fire are often very costly.
Large amounts of shavings are accumulated in and around the planer. When ignited, these shavings can cause rapid fires resulting in considerable damages.
A moulder is often installed in a production area adjacent to other machinery. The consequences of a fire in a moulder can therefore be extensive and damage surrounding equipment.
The fine dust generated by a sander can, when ignited, give rise to severe dust explosions and rapid spread of fire.
The band saw is often the first stage in the production process. Accumulation of material together with high speed rotating mechanical parts and powerful motors creates a large risk for fire.
Every year there are hundreds of fires in presses throughout the world. Production downtime and damage to the press are costly consequences.
