Explosion relief and protection at hydrogen refuelling stations

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

Speaker(s): Robert Brewerton

Organisation(s): Inoventech

Duration: 59 min

SUMMARY

Robert Brewerton has been involved in fire and explosion research, FABIG and HSE guidance and project design since 1990. The differences between hydrogen and hydrocarbon gases impact on the design of explosion venting of enclosures and protection walls as applied to hydrogen refuelling stations. The higher reactivity of the gas coupled to ignition turbulence increases the severity of explosions in vented containers and in the open, albeit with much shorter impulse durations and the probability of detonation is increased. Faster opening vent panels and doors are presented in this webinar with projectile avoidance being a requirement. An updated approach to blastwall design is also presented, which in many cases will favour reinforced concrete as the construction material. This webinar includes many illustrations.
