This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The project is a continuation of successful projects of Flame Propagation Study in Hartmann Tube (Institutional) and Design of Measurement System for Assessment of Burning Processes of Dispersed and Deposited Industrial Dusts (Incubator). Four successful patent applications (+ two more in the final stage of completion) have been registered under the above mentioned projects for the development and design of equipment for studying dispersed dust. The project is focused on the development and construction of a universal control system applicable to the study of flammable and explosive dusts. The study of flammable and explosive dusts at UIBE takes place on the following equipments: 1. Explosion chamber KV 150-M2 for determination of explosion parameters 2. Modified Hartmann tube to determine the minimum initiation energy of dispersed dusts 3. An apparatus for determining the min. ignition temperature of a dust layer from a hot surface 4. An apparatus for determining the min. ignition temperature of a dispersed dust from a hot surface The project will focus on the development and construction of a universal control system that will co-operate with the listed devices according to the standards STN EN 14 034, EN 13 821 and STN EN ISO / IEC 80079-20-2. The results of the research can be used in publication outputs and in the implementation of business activities. The designed and constructed universal control system will be useful for research purposes as well as for the assessment and classification of explosive atmospheres in industrial enterprises. This is important because industrial undertakings are required to classify under legislation.
