To mitigate the risk of an explosion in these applications, it is critical to use conveyors that are especially designed to address the conditions which can lead to a dust explosion.

What it
means to you

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 customized TipTrak™ bucket elevator was supplied for the handling of TNT.

Since then, UniTrak has become a recognized leader in handling explosive applications.

Our equipment can be tailored to provide a high degree of dust control and explosion prevention. Our TipTrak bucket elevator for explosive applications can be fully-sealed, fully-grounded and can operate under a gas purge. Many other customization options make this conveyor ideal for safe operation in hazardous or explosive environments.
