The production of powder and bulk products often requires complex processes. Powder and other combustible materials are worked in different ways by numerous fast running machines. The byproduct of these production processes - combustible dust - is especially explosive.
Friction and heat can cause ignition. Sparks, embers, or hot particles can be created and transported through dust collection and conveying systems to downstream process equipment, filters, silos, or bins. These hazards can meet explosive wood dust concentrations and quickly cause fire and dust explosions.

The GreCon spark detection and extinguishing system significantly increases the safety of the production facilities. It detects sparks and automatically extinguishes them before they reach the filter, silos, or bins.

GreCon spark detection and extinguishing systems play an important part in making your workplace safer, maintain production up-time, minimize equipment damage, reduce insurance premiums, and help meet NFPA standards and OSHA regulations.
