For tens of years, the name Thorwesten is known for silos that warrant the rock materials-, limestone-, and similar industries economical storage and material transfer.
When the demand for pressure shock resistant silos for storage of potentially dust explosion hazardous bulk arose, the company took up constructional explosion protection as complementary activity.
In 1996, the success of this new activity has lead to the founding of Thorwesten Vent GmbH in Beckum, an important cement industry location where Thorwesten has strong roots.
Today, Thorwesten Vent GmbH is an internationally recognised specialised company for constructional explosion protection and the manufacturer of self-reclosing, internationally patented explosion doors.
The company offers explosion protection-related consultancy for both the planning of new- and the correction of existing grinding facilities for solid fuels. The special features of the air-cushioned explosion doors and the great expertise regarding their implementation in such systems are indispensable, for this kind of application.
Thorwesten Vent GmbH supplies pressure shock resistant silos for solid fuels. If required, workshop drawings and static calculations for worldwide realisation by 3rd parties also can be offered.
