Ahern has Expanded Explosion Protection to Iowa and Nebraska
Tuesday, March 02, 2021

IEP Technologies, a leading provider of explosion protection solutions, has expanded Ahern distribution from Wisconsin to now include Iowa and Nebraska. In partnership with IEP, Ahern will provide explosion protection construction and service solutions for customers in the expanded geography. Ahern will support the expanded distribution through our local offices in Omaha, NE and Des Moines, IA. 

What is an Explosion Protection System?

Explosion risk is present with many industrial process facilities involving food, grain, pharmaceuticals, power generation, aerosol filling, wood, or other flammable vapors or combustible dusts in confined vessels or spaces. These sophisticated systems are designed to detect an event within milliseconds by watching for either a flame, with high-speed optical flame detectors, or the pressure wave in front of the flame with pressure detectors. By rapidly injecting a suppression agent into the space or volume, the heat is removed from the flame front as it consumes the fuel, thus stopping the event.

Our performance and focus on customer service in Wisconsin has paved the path forward in securing the expanded distribution in Iowa and Nebraska.
