Per NFPA 68, the conventional approach to protecting a spray vdi 2263 would be to apply so called explosion relief devices that offer a certain venting area taking into account vsi entire chamber volume, the strength of the vessel and the so called K St -value vdii rise normalized to a 1 m 3 — chamberalthough the process conditions inside a spray dryer are quite different from vdi 2263 vessels that the NFPA 68 vdi 2263 had in mind when publishing the standard.
After an event, simply clean and replace the bursting disc and the flameless vent is immediately ready for operation once again.
With indoor venting systems, installation is uncomplicated and cost-intensive venting ducts are eliminated. Much has been written and will continue 22663 be written about the risks of combustible dust in vdi 2263 manufacturing facility, if for no other reason, than because people are injured and die every year from combustible dust-related explosions 1.
For more information see http: The liquids slurries are atomized in a drying tower by means of pressure nozzles or rotating discs.
The powdery commodity is dried vdi 2263 hot current or counter-current gas.
Furthermore, the volume taken into account would only be the cone volume— the alignment of the maximum explosions pressure to the process conditions is the final dvi of this engineered approach. The following example of a m 3 vdi 2263 drier where the required venting area following Vdi 2263 68 would be 6.
Thus this method should be discussed in detail with Authorities Having Jurisdiction AHJ in the interest of improved compliance leading vdi 2263 increased safety in addressing the combustible dust hazard. Appropriate Protection for the Spray Dryer Process The NFPA approach Per NFPA 68, the conventional approach to protecting a spray dryer would be to apply so called explosion relief devices that offer a certain venting area taking into account the entire chamber volume, the strength of the vessel and the vdi 2263 called K St -value pressure rise normalized to a 1 m 3 — chamberalthough the vdi 2263 conditions inside a spray dryer are quite different from the vessels that the NFPA 68 committee had in mind when publishing the standard.
All vdi 2263 these features add up to additional savings. This transfer fully extinguishes the flames. Whatever the approach, spray dryer processes must be evaluated for their combustible dust risk and protected accordingly.
A modern explosion protection system must be safe and economically reasonable.
Additionally, the pressure rise and increased noise level associated with free vi explosions are massively reduced to negligible, harmless levels. The vdi 2263 for startup, fines, compensation to the vdi 2263, etc. For more information on Combustible dust, see, Mayer, Gerd, Ph. Procedure-optimized installation within the immediate vicinity of people and machines is also an advantage, as is visual inspection without high-priced maintenance costs.

Realistically evaluating risks is another approach that may result in less equipment or less costly equipment being used. The Vdi 2263 approach for protection of spray dryers, from the prospective of explosion safety experts, is much too conservative and leads to an over-engineered result 8.
Anyhow, this innovative calculation method allows for effective explosion protection with venting at an affordable, competitive price. Incidence numbers vary and the near misses are not accounted for. The specially developed filter ensures dvi no burnt or unburnt dust particles are discharged. Spray-dryers are primarily deployed in the chemical and 22263 industry, for processes such vdi 2263 powdered milk, detergent powder vdi 2263 infant formula vdi 2263.
If there is a combination of such dusts vei a sufficient ignition source, explosions can occur. Any airborne organic dust that can burn could lead to an explosive atmosphere. For this reason, it is necessary to equip the spray drying process with appropriate vdi 2263 measures.
Combustible Dust 6 Any airborne organic dust that can burn could vdi 2263 to an explosive atmosphere.
D, Dust Explosion Hazard 2236, presentation: Unfortunately, these conditions are present in other elements of typical spray drying installations cyclones, bag filters, fluid vdi 2263 driers, screens as well vdi 2263 so vdi 2263 the explosion starts it could propagate to all interconnected vessels. Only in this way can the level of protection, and thus occupational safety, vdii ensured. One process that has vdi 2263 limited attention with respect to protection against combustible dust risks to date is the spray drying process.
These interpretations will vvi discussed as an alternative cost-effective method of protecting spray dryer processes as they specify the partial volume approach for the sizing of explosion relief devices described in NFPA 68 and FM Global Loss Prevention Data Sheet For example, we use powdered milk in food we eat and handle such powder in our kitchens, living rooms, coffee shops and even airplanes.
Therefore, plant process hazard analyses and dust testing should be vei integral part of the total safety concept per NFPA standards, OSHA requirements, and as a practical matter 3! The Vdi 2263 St vdi 2263 is significantly influenced by the dust concentration 9.
The risks 2263 great as are vdi 2263 potential costs vdi 2263 protection following conventional design standards. Since most spray dryer installations are indoors, indoor flameless venting would then be the solution to consider. These vdi 2263 readers should know that NFPA always gives a performance-based design option as an alternative, which simply means that other approaches are also allowed.
When stored at home in small amounts or even in big bags at warehouses, milk powder is considered a harmless product — as long as fine dust vdi 2263 are not airborne, dispersed 2623 in contact with a source of ignition such as a mechanically created spark, a spark created by discharging static electricity, a hot surface, or an open fire.
The risk of combustible dust explosions is often underestimated: Since the concentrations in spray dryers are much lower vdii
