Page 6 Silo Components That Need Regular Inspection Like all structures, silos degrade over time. This natural and inevitable deterio- ration can lead to safety hazards such as falling debris, leaky structure, fire or explosions, wall failure, roof failure, and/or structural failure.

Page 30 Explosion Detection System The IEP Technologies SmartDS dynamic explosion detection system is designed for demanding explo- sion protection applications requiring state-of-the-art rate of rise pressure sensing and data interrogation. The SmartDS has the ability to analyze rate of pressure rise and to differentiate this from non-explosion pressure excursions. It is fully programmable to accommodate a wide range of hazard and process conditions, including vacuum and positive pressure applications. The detector design also is suit- able for hygienic applications. Typical applications include protection of dust collectors, drying systems, pneumatic conveying systems, and reaction vessels.
