Avoidance of explosive atmosphere

Descripción del producto

An explosive dust atmosphere exists in the raw gas compartment of the Herding filter unit depending on the operating mode of the cleaning system. The Herding® sinter-plate filter acts as a DustExZoneBarrier and no explosive dust atmosphere exists on the clean gas side.


The units situated downstream from the Herding® filter unit need to be designed only for the simple safe zone and are not required to be configured with explosion protection features.
