Explosion protection kits are available from leading manufacturers like Pyroban and typically include the following;
The Pyroban explosion protection kit is suitable for use in hazardous areas where explosive gases occure (ATEX directive 2014/34/EU). When properly installed, the kit provides protection to (i) Equipment Group II, (ii) Category 3G, (iii) Gas Group IIA and (iv) Temperature Class T3. Additional components are added according to the application and engine documentation.

There is always a risk of a flammable hydrocarbon release in the oil and gas industry. When the release comes into contact with air and an ignition source, an explosion is a real risk. Pyroban Ex Power solutions are designed to eliminate the ignition risk and keep your workers and assets safe.
Potential ignition sources on unprotected diesel engines include electrical, mechanical or static sparks, overspeed or flame transmission from inlet or exhaust, and hot surfaces. Pyroban protection cover critical considerations like;
Air Inlet shut-off Valves | Flammable gases in the atmosphere can be drawn in through the air intake along with air for combustion. This can result in flashbacks through the inlet and backfires in the exhaust.
Air inlet flame arrestor | When Gas is ingested, there is risk of the engine misfiring, leading to unburnt fuel mixture entering the exhaust system. This can be detonated from the heat of the exhaust and ignite the surrounding (now flammable) atmosphere.
Water-cooled Turbocharger & Exhaust Manifold | Many surfaces on a diesel engine can exceed safe limits and become sources of ignition. These surfaces need to be protected to avoid the danger of explosion by ensuring surface temperature is below 200oC (T3).
Thermal control & treatment | Thermal signature of engines and ancillary parts can be further reduced using our proprietary thermal coatings
Exhaust Gas Heat Exchanger | Cools the engine exhaust below 200oC (T3)
Exhaust Flame Traps | Prevents back fire from the explosion proof exhaust system. Can be eliminated by using our certified SCS system.
Spark Arrestor | Ensures that no exhaust-born hot particles escape into the atmosphere
Radiator | A choice of industrial or marine solder dipped radiators providing
