- All machine design and circuit diagrams
- Risk assessment and hazard analysis
- Operator manual
- Documentation of components delivered by sub-suppliers
- List of applied norms and standards
- Declaration of conformity and incorporation
Explosion protection - A sensitive and complex subject
The products packed in the food industry are mainly powders & flours - i. e. dusty products. Therefore dust explosions cannot be excluded. Explosion protection plays an essential role. Only if implemented correctly and properly it can save human lives.
Our experts support and advise you in the correct implementation of:
- Zone classifications
- Ignition danger assessment
- Explosion protection documents
In addition, they are at your full disposal with regard to the following measures:
As to explosion protection we closely cooperate with our parent company HAVER & BOECKER - an expert in this field for more than 125 years. At that time mining lamps used fine wire mesh manufactured by HAVER & BOECKER to prevent the ignition of explosive methane gas in mines.
