Working in conjunction with the certifier and using TechnoKontrol´s primary products, TUV Nord-Ankara filled a 100 litre fuel tank with both Gasoline and our specially designed product. They welded the outside of the fuel tank and started to fire bullets into it. No fire or explosion took place. A further test was run via placing the fuel tank into a fire basin and again no boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion took place.
Finally the same tests were conducted (i.e. bullets were fired into the fuel tank and the fuel tank was placed into a fire basin) however changing the fuel type from Gasoline to Propane Gas and again our product was able to withstand both tests with no explosions taking place.
Prevent deflagration explosions due to combustible dust particles, gases or vapors with NFPA 69. Combustible dust, gases and vapors produced in industrial settings can pose a significant safety hazard.NFPA 69: Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems offers definitive guidance on explosion protection and prevention systems.
