Provision of explosion proof air separation units under contemporary conditions
Modern methods are considered for providing explosion proof air separation units (ASU); measures required for providing explosion proof ASU are given; explosions in installations equipped with complete air purification units before its supply to low-temperature separation are analyzed; technological reasons are considered for the occurrence of explosion hazard conditions in condenser-reboilers.
