Particleboard plants as “typical” facilities of the wood based panel industry consist of a variety of system components that are present in every operation of the industry. The risk of explosion in silos, especially in the warm season, is very high as the wet material carries the risk of spontaneous combustion and hence ultimately the risk of an explosion. Mills carry a high explosion risk as well. Inherently, every mill has metallic parts that approach and touch each other at high velocities and therefore very probably creates ignition sources. Because mills confined spaces with a high dust concentration which also contain oxygen, there is basically nothing to prevent an explosion. These examples are only two of many issues that need to be considered to ensure a safe process and a safe environment.
As you can see, a broad range of perspectives are required to obtain a holistic picture regarding Explosion Safety in the wood-processing industry. This is why the speakers at REMBE Safety Days 2018 include operators, research institutes, plant engineers, insurers and consulting companies.
One of the highlights at the event are the live explosion tests on the premises of the REMBE Research + Technology Center.
The event will be held in English due to the international audience. In addition to theoretical explanations and practical experience reports, a key importance is also placed on providing sufficient time for the personal exchange of information.
“We have been at home in the wood processing industry for many years, and have repeatedly noticed that a platform of this kind is missing – that’s why we created this event,” explains Dr.-Ing. Johannes Lottermann, Explosion Safety Director at REMBE GmbH Safety + Control.
