Explosion safety system

Toyota forklifts

Dutch waste management company Van Gansewinkel has bought three Toyota forklifts featuring Pyroban explosion protection (pictured below) to ensure maximum safety for staff at its site in Moerdijk, the Netherlands.

“We process several thousand tonnes of chemical waste each year,” said site manager Jan Goedhart. “A lot of the waste is flammable, so it is critical that we manage the operation with no compromises to safety.”

The forklifts feature Pyroban’s system6000E, a system that prevents explosions by combining gas detection with various explosion protection methods.

It includes the use of restricted breathing enclosures, stainless steel cladding for forks and surface temperature cooling to 135°C to ensure that motors, brakes, electrics and other components remain below the auto-ignition temperature of the flammable materials.
