Blast protection containers

One of our customers has recently developed an interesting product out of our PVC fittings. The picture below shows pvc pipe and end caps being used as part of a blast protection container.


The PVC is ideal for creating individual pots with lids. Each of these little pots houses the company’s own unique material known as TABRE (Technology for Attenuating Blast Related Energy) which absorbs the shock waves from blasts. The equipment is used in factories producing explosive components. A small amount of primary explosive is stored in each pot. In the event of an accident, the pots prevent one explosive charge setting off the next one, hence limiting the overall explosive event. The pots are then stored in trays, in a purpose built container which can be hand carried around the factory, protecting the user from any harmful explosive effects.
