The primary function of explosion protection is to avoid explosions or to limit the dangerous effects of a possible explosion. Explosion protection is of central importance in the domain of technical safety. The objective is the effective protection of people, goods, the environment and a smooth production process in sensitive work areas. An explosive atmosphere can arise in a wide variety of industrial areas where flammable substances, oxygen and ignition sources come together. These hazardous environments not only occur in the known areas of chemicals/petrochemicals due to gases; dangerous, explosive atmospheres can also arise in the food and feed industry when certain dusts are handled. For this reason, companies must carry out a risk assessment and take appropriate explosion protection measures in accordance with the industrial safety regulations.
