Explosion Protection Solutions for Bulk Storage Silos ...

15/06/2019  Within passive explosion protection the explosion itself is not halted but instead the pressure and flame is released out of the silo ensuring that the internal pressure remains below the design strength of the silo itself. This is achieved through the use of explosion vent panels. The vent panel will open at a predetermined set pressure and provide a planned pathway for the expanding

Silo fires : fire extinguishing and preventive and ...

The recommended basic method for extinguishing a silo fire is a combination of inerting the silo with nitrogen gas from the silo bottom and subsequent discharge of the silo while monitoring and extinguishing hot material. It should, however, be noted that experience from tests and real fires is limited to silos with a diameter of up to about 10 m and bulk material with relatively high porosity ...

Coal silo (surge bin) fire protection and explosion prevention and NFPA 850. One aspect that is regularly a debating point when applying the recommendations in NFPA 850 to the design of coal surge bins (silos) is the recommendations for manual fire fighting access ports (or systems which discharge into the bin without the use of ports) and prevention of explosions.
