Diageo Scotland Ltd DSEAR compliance

Clark and Sutherland Ltd are currently underway with a large project spread over 3 of Diageos malting facilities to ensure compliance with the DSEAR (Dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres regulations) This project has invloved site assessments to determine explosion risk and the equipment protection required. Components installed include - Explosion rupture panels, explosion flamequenchers, explosion isolation valves in dust extraction systems and product plugs in screw conveyors to name a few. Installing these to existing equipment has required the manufacture of transition ducts to accomodate them, all of which have been manufactured in house.

All new equipment was in compliance with ATEX and fitted with appropriate explosion relief equipment.
