Many manufacturing processes can create combustible (aka explosive) dust: Essentially, it is any fine material that has the ability to catch fire and explode when mixed with air. Combustible dust examples range from most solid organic materials (such as sugar, flour, grain, wood, etc.) to metals and many more.
When a combustible dust encounters an ignition source, there is the potential for a fire or explosion. That’s why it is essential for any manufacturing operation that generates, processes, or handles combustible dusts to understand its properties - and to have a comprehensive plan to manage and mitigate that potential risk.
In this webinar, our engineers will cover the fundamentals of combustible dust and introduce related European legislation (ATEX directives). Some key points to be covered during the presentation include:
