Fire and explosion protection 2023


Operators of dust extraction systems are aware of the dangers that can arise in their production when fine dusts of organic and metallic components are stirred up. They have a duty and are responsible for implementing the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health.

Safety First for filter systems

Under the motto Safety First for Filter Systems, the practical seminar on fire and explosion protection deals with these and other safety-relevant topics. In proven form - alternating theory and practice - it offers a comprehensive opportunity to exchange experiences and transfer knowledge at first hand. Live fire and explosion demonstrations illustrate the dangers and round off the seminar. Experience our practical seminar.
