Hello I am designing a distillation column containing some flammable chemicals (e.g. acetic acid). I am considering to have it as vacuum. Is there a high risk of explosion due to air inward leakage? Can I estimate the amount leaked in for 50mbar?

You should perform a safety review with your colleagues at the work place.
