Explosion Risk Assessment

Explosion Risk Assessment

THE SIMULATOR OF DUST EXPLOSIONS

ETEA Sicurezza Group employs the most advanced technological means to fulfil the explosion risk assessment and makes use of specific calculation programs for the simulation of dust or gas explosions, such as software D.E.S.C. (Dust Explosion Simulation Code) and FLACS (Flame Acceleration Simulator).

The simulation of real explosions represents a valid alternative to the norms and is a good way to identify the most suitable safety measure for each situation.

Besides the use of advanced software ETEA Sicurezza Group can rely on the long experience and high specialization of its technicians and risk assessors in order to select and provide the best technical solutions for each single application and analyse the explosion risk under all its facets.

DESC is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulator of dust explosions, developed by a consortium of 11 participants in a project of the European Community. DESC allows to simulate evolution of dust explosion in complex geometries and to assess their expected effects. DESC helps designers to evaluate the effects of overpressure on the plant and allows to simulate the mitigating effects of protective systems (explosion suppressors, quick sliding valves, venting panels, etc.)

How to use DESC

  • Reproduce a model of the real geometry to be included in the DESC
  • Define the type of powder (Kst, Pmax, etc.)
  • Define the ignition source point and set the parameters of the simulation
  • Place any protection and/or isolation systems (venting panels, quick sliding valves, chemical suppressors)
  • Start simulation
  • View and export the results
  • Repeat simulation by changing the parameters.
