Dust explosion protection at a blast furnace

Many steel making raw materials are dusty – such as coal. Some of these dusty materials create an explosive mixture if distributed in air, therefore forming a potential explosion risk. In order to detect dangerous dust concentrations in and around material handling systems, employing dust detection equipment to monitor the dust content in the air is required. Durable and reliable monitoring technologies are needed to perform this important task. The DUSTHUNTER product family, with its long maintenance intervals, offers low cost of ownership and flexible modular systems.
