There are five key elements that must come together in order to produce a deflagration explosion. These are fuel, oxygen, a confined space, dispersion, and a source of ignition. Several elements can cause an ignition including a flame, welding arc, frictional or electrostatic sparking, and spontaneous combustion. At Getz Fire Equipment Company, we offer equipment that can form an explosion protection system designed to help you contain and suppress these sources of ignition.
The term ‘deflagration’ refers to a propagating combustion wave. The leading edge of this wave, which travels slower than the speed of sound, has a flame front to it which quickly increases its speed and ultimately transforms into a high-pressure shockwave. This pressure shockwave and associated flame will develop into an explosion if the pressure of the wave cannot be suppressed.
