Fire safety in timber industry

Supplier: ProDetec
30 May, 2014

Many of today's investments in the wood panel industry aim at raising process automation and increasing production capacity.

This leads to a decrease of personnel at the plants. The risk for fire and dust explosions in the wood panel industry has always been very high. Unfortunately as production increases, so does the risk for fire and dust explosions.

Is your plant at risk?

Wood is a particularly a very flammable material. Wood dust can ignite at a temperature from as low as 260°C.  Compare this to the temperature of a newly extinguished match, which is over 500°C.

At ProDetec, we never generalise

Every factory in the process industries is different. Even within the same type of business, such as the wood panel industry, no two factories operate alike. The risk for fire or a dust explosion will therefore vary from factory to factory.

For over 40 years, Firefly has specialised in creating tailor-made solutions that will fit your operation. Our engineers have vast experience in the wood panel industry and the highest technical skills necessary to design a safe fire prevention solution for your company.

At ProDetec we are able to perform an on-site assessment and design a solution that will provide optimal safety against fire and dust explosions at your facilities.
