Fire and Explosion Prevention for the Flour Industry

Spark Detection & Extinguishing Systems offer safety for your production.

In flour production, cereal grains are industrially processed in large quantities. The whole process, including the grinding process and the transport to silos and storage space, holds a high risk of fire or dust explosion. The byproduct of these processes, combustible dust, is especially explosive

When producing flour, highly combustible dust is generated. Overheating, caused by frictional heat within mills, as well as sparks, embers or hot particles generated in the plant can ignite dry, flammable and explosive material. This could cause severe damage or lead to undesired changes in taste and impair the quality of the product through contamination.



Zones at risk in flour processing

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

  • Silos
  • Mills
  • Conveying systems
  • Extraction systems
  • Filters

Fire and explosion prevention for the flour industry

GreCon spark detection and extinguishing system significantly increases the safety of flour production. It detects sparks from mills, conveying systems, silos and other production processes and automatically extinguishes or diverts them before they reach downstream process equipment — and these systems have done so successfully for more than 35 years in over 200,000 installations worldwide.

We continually strive to make industry a safer place to work. 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.
