Dust explosions are one of the major preventable losses of life and property in industry today. Many installed systems are either old or non compliant to today’s standards, are recent installations without the necessary explosion prevention features or poorly maintained resulting in questionable reliability of the installed safety features. This seminar is intended to cover all aspects of dust explosion prevention including NFPA and OSHA code requirements as well as recommended proven engineering practices which control the collection, transport, storage and disposal of explosive dusts.
Failure to install, maintain or inspect dust collectors to the recognized NFPA standards can result in dangerous levels of explosive dust accumulations inside the facility. If the dust becomes suspended in sufficient quantities, an explosion can occur with devastating results. Recent explosions in the sawmill industry have raised the awareness of the need to provide and maintain the proper NFPA compliant explosion safety devices on dust handling equipment.
