How to protect your drying process from explosions

Drying is an energy-intensive process that requires more capital and operating dollars than almost any other bulk material process. This and the dangerous combination of heat and dust inside dryers and associated equipment demand that you pay special attention to protecting your drying process, workers, and plant from dust explosions. This article discusses the elements required for an explosion, how an explosion develops, and ways to protect your drying process from explosions. Final sections cover how to select an explosion protection method and describe protection strategies for several types of dryers.

A smooth drying operation depends on consistently removing moisture from your bulk material. Any interruption affects not only your processing line, but the bottom line, as well.
