Everybody talks about refineries, chemical works or gas storage plants – but one of the most underestimated explosion hazards is found in the food and beverage industry. Yet, accidents, fire and explosion are no blows of fate – most of these incidents could be prevented….
Statistically the Food , brewing and animal feed industries account for 42% of the explosions in the UK, 51% in the USA and 25% in Germany. Explosive products in these industries include flour, custard powder, instant coffee, sugar, dried milk, potato powder and soup powder.
The Great Fire of London started at a bakery on Pudding Lane, it was believed that sparks from the oven, dropped on to bags of flour and it spread rapidly west across the city of London. In this incident we had a fire where we had fuel (flour), oxygen and an ignition source, but this article is more interested in explosions, where dispersion and containment is required.
