Blast Protection for Offshore Oil and Gas

Blast protection especially in offshore environments is a must. The first priority of the blast dampers is to protect people and equipment in case of blast. In case of blast, without proper protection, the blast wave will penetrate into the building through air inlets and exhaust penetrations in an otherwise hardened structure.

Typical challenges in blast protection

Explosion is considered as an event, where energy is released in an extreme manner and followed by rapid increase in volume. There are different types of explosions, but usually two types are linked especially to industrial environment: Chemical and Mechanical Explosions. In some cases, these explosions can follow each other. Blast or shock wave will follow right after the explosion. Basically, this is the increased pressure and flow resulting from the explosion. The top priority is try to eliminate any possible explosion or blast and secondly to protect the building with a sufficient blast protection dampers.

Halton blast damper operation principle

Blast dampers are used to protect occupants and equipment of a structure against overpressures resultant of an explosion. The blast dampers normally protect air inlets and exhaust penetrations in an otherwise hardened structure. See the animation of Halton BDH blast damper in action.
