Technology investments in the wood panel industry are aimed at raising process automation and increasing production capacity.

While automation may reduce the number of personnel at the plants, the risk for fire and dust explosions in the wood panel industry remains very high, especially when the production is increased. Wood is particularly a very flammable material with wood dust igniting at a temperature from as low as 260°C.

Given that no two factories in process industries operate alike, the risk for fire or a dust explosion will vary from plant to plant.

For over 40 years, Firefly has specialised in creating tailor-made solutions that will fit a specific operation. Clients get the advantage of experienced engineers with the technical skills necessary to design a safe fire prevention solution for their production environments.

ProDetec performs an on-site assessment and designs a solution that will provide optimal safety against fire and dust explosions at any facility.
