Explosion Safety for breweries

Beer, the favourite drink of the Germans. There is a risk of explosion during the production process, especially during the delivery, cleaning and weighing, as well as during the grinding and storage of hops and malt. This mainly refers to elevators, silos, mills and the associated funnels, cyclones and filters.

Depending on the location and size, explosion vents, Q-Box (flameless explosion venting) and chemical barriers are used for elevators, in short: the only EC type-examined protection system ElevatorEX.

How to properly protect mills, silos, filters and cyclones in breweries, can be read here:

The overall picture counts:

The protection of individual system components is only as good as the protection of the entire system. Pay particular attention to having sufficient decoupling devices, and the protection against “over engineering”. Only if the entire system is observed, and the individual protective measures are aligned to each other, will your Explosion Safety concept be safe AND economic.

We therefore offer you comprehensive protection concepts and on-site consulting, on how you can implement organizational measures to achieve a greater degree of safety.
