Fire and Explosion Prevention for the Coffee Industry

Spark Detection & Extinguishing Systems offer safety for your coffee roasting

The coffee industry processes raw coffee in large lots. The processing operation, especially the separation of the individual components, such as the coffee skin, holds a high risk of fire. The byproduct of these processes, combustible dust, is especially explosive

Due to the roasting and fine grinding of coffee, single sparks or overheated particle are suficient for an ignition of this combustible meterial. Defective machine parts, foreign objects in the food supply or high dryer temperatures can cause overheating, sparks or embers, These hazards can trigger off fire and dust explosions in mechanical and pneumatic conveying systems and downstream filters, silos and bins.

Fire or explosions in coffee production can damage or even destroy the facility. GreCon spark detection and extinguishing system monitors and protects the following areas at risk:

  • Roaster
  • Silo
  • Cooler
  • Extraction system
  • filter
