Coal grinding systems have wrongs in fire and explosion protection due to purchasing process: See here why.

How to get your coal grinding system correctly protected? You will be surprised about what has gone wrong with fire and explosion protection of your system(s). Be sure about that! Evaluation of a coal grinding system’s fire and explosion protection, including the raw coal storage and the fine coal silo storage normally can be done in one day, mostly without having to stop coal grinding.

The evaluation will be done by way of touring the plant, making photos and having interviews with the people responsible for the operation. This will result in a comprehensive illustrated report and complete recommendations with explanations for necessary corrections. Ask for a free-of-charge offer indicating your airport.

Our Partner for Constructional Explosion Protection: Thorwesten Vent GmbH

Thorwesten Vent

This company shares premises, fabrication facilities and and know-how with its sister company Silobau Thorwesten GmbH.

Many years ago the production of explosion pressure shock resistant silos for pulverized fuels has led to also specialise in constructional explosion protection. Initially, the focus was on explosion doors for silos for pulverized fuels. Later, explosion doors for the more demanding protection of coal grinding systems with their mill-to-bagfilter riser ducts by means of explosion de-coupling and for explosion venting for bagfilters became part of the scope of Thorwesten Vent’s production scope.

This development has led to Thorwesten Vent becoming a highly specialised separate company.
