In certain conveying applications, the risk
of a dust explosion is a real and
present danger. For an explosion
to occur, three conditions need to
be present: fuel (the product
being handled or dust from the
product); ignition; and oxygen.

UniTrak’s  first explosive
application project took place in
1971 at the Volunteer Ammunition
Plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee,
USA. In that project, a highly
customerized TipTrak™ was
supplied for the handling of TNT.

Since then, UniTrak’s experience
in handling explosives has grown
over the years.
