Process Vessels Subject to Explosion Risk - Design Guidelines for the Pressure Rating of Weak Process Vessels Subject to Explosion Risk
Author: British Materials Handling Board
Publication year: 1999
Extent: Paperback, 76 pages
The process industries have long wanted a structured method of manufacturing equipment that may be subject to dust explosions, that would enable suitably protected plant to withstand a transient explosion. These guidelines provide the best available information on the pressure capabilities of relatively weak process vessels in the event of an internal explosion.
Despite not covering all situations, this guide will help engineers to calculate the strength of weak vessels and thus enable explosion venting and suppression systems to have a more consistent foundation and remove many of the difficulties associated with lack of knowledge of vessel strength.
