Explosion protection

In addition to modern laboratories FSA has a test site in Kappelrodeck / Black Forest where explosion experiments with dust /air and gas / air mixtures can be carried out under realistic conditions on large scale tests.


FSA GmbH operates an experimental plant for the research of gas and dust explosions in a former granite quarry in the northern Black Forest of Germany.  We also test equipment, components and protective systems to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. 

The highly qualified team of the test site, some with more than 20 years of experience in the field of explosion protection, has an extensive infrastructure at their disposal for handling all kinds of different tasks.
