Protection of biogas plants

Reliable protection against lightning and surges for biogas plants

High-tech production plants, usually with fully-automated processes, make it possible to use biomass to generate energy. These plants are, by nature, expensive and the fully-automated processes and procedures susceptible to disturbances.
As the fermentation and gas tanks contain a mixture of gas and air, these parts of the plant are classified as potentially explosive.

A reliable system of protection against lightning and surges is needed to safeguard the high availability and smooth operation of biogas plants.

Good planning protects your plant

A complete protection concept for a biogas plant includes:

  • external lightning protection for the fermenter
  • protection of the gas preparation systems
  • surge protection for power supply systems
  • surge protection for data technology

The isolated lightning protection system with the high-voltage-resistant HVI Conductor is particularly suited for external lightning protection.
It is the optimum way of maintaining separation distances and preventing dangerous sparking and flashover to conductive parts of the plant.

DEHN Test Centre

Test your system components

At the DEHN Test Centre you can have your system and plant components and parts tested for their lightning current carrying capacity... or check the coordination of surge protective devices with downstream equipment.

Further DEHN engineering and testing services include:

  • Lightning current tests
    e.g., for non-sparking equipotential bonding connections
  • Coordination tests
    e.g., for surge arresters with programmable logic controls or between isolating spark gaps and insulating flanges
