DESS – Dedicated Explosion Safety System

The DESS includes 6 basic activities. However, since we treat each case individually, the final scope of necessary activities is defined on the basis of an explosive safety audit. It is important that the DESS can be applied for single facilities, fragments of installations, as well as for whole industrial plants. The DESS is a complex anti-explosion system.

RISK IDENTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT

  • Working out an Explosion Risk Assessment (in case of new investment project, also at the design stage)
  • Determining explosion risk zones (in case of new investment project, also at the design stage).
  • Working out an Explosion Protection Document

LIMITING EXPLOSION RISK

  • Verifying existing process facilities and drives and selecting new ones – from the point of view of working in determined explosion risk zones.
  • Limiting ignition sources of explosive atmospheres through application of electrotechnical solutions in explosion-proof designs (including light fixtures, switchgears, control cassettes and panels, connecting fittings, safety cut-out switches).
  • Limiting explosive atmospheres through implementation of dust extraction plants, central dust exhausting and ventilation systems.

LIMITING EXPLOSION RESULTS

  • Implementing an explosion damping system
  • Implementing an explosion relief system
  • Implementing an explosion decoupling system

TO WHAT EXTENSION THE DESS SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED?

The scope of implementation of the Dedicated Explosive Safety System is determined by actual needs of the industrial plant. To specify these needs, an expert of GRUPA WOLFF™ conducts an Explosion Safety Audit of process systems, buildings and halls covered by the ATEX directive. In effect, a report is prepared where critical points of examined facilities are explicitly indicated. The report is a basis for specifying the scope of the DESS implementation in particular industrial plant.

DESS includes 6 basic activities:

01-hexa

Carrying out an audit (existing systems) or an initial Explosion Risk Assessment of a project (systems in a design phase).

02-hexa

Identifying process apparatus/centres to be handled in the first place.

03-hexa

Working out a Conception of Protection against Explosion Effects for a particular industrial plant / system / facility.

04-hexa

Implementing – in a “turn-key” system – an accepted Conception of Protection against Explosion Effects.

05-hexa

Carrying out a final Explosion Risk Assessment for the system or updating an existing Explosion Protection Document.

06-hexa

Conducting a dedicated training on process safety as adjusted to the specificity of a particular plant or institution.
