Fire and Explosion Prevention for the Cocoa Industry

Spark Detection & Extinguishing Systems offer safety for your cocoa production

The cocoa industry processes cacao beans in large quantities. Cleaning, pre-heating, roasting process- es and transport of the cocoa cake holds a high risk of fire. The byproduct of these processes, combustible dust, is especially explosive

Fine grinding of the combustible materials, produce sparks, embers or overheated particles that are suficient for an ignition. Defective machine parts, foreign objects or high process temperatures can cause overheating, sparks or embers, These hazards can trigger fire and dust explosions in mechanical and pneumatic conveying systems and downstream filters, silos and bins.
