Combustible dusts that provide fuel for fires or explosions are frequently organic or metal dusts that are finely ground into very small particles, fibers, fines, chips, chunks, flakes, or a small mixtures. Types of dusts include, metal dust, such as aluminum and magnesium; wood dust; plastic dust; biosolids; organic dust, such as sugar, paper, soap, and dried blood; and dusts from certain textiles.
Five Conditions are Required for a Dust Explosion:
◆ combustible dust fuel is present
◆ dust suspended in air at high concentration
◆ oxidant is present
◆ ignition source is present
◆ area is confined or enclosed in a building
Sources of Dust Ignition Include:
◆ electrostatic discharge
◆ electrical arcing
◆ hot surfaces
◆ auto ignition
Combustible dust cleaning removes the fuel for explosions. Remtech uses static controlled and grounded, and dust suppression systems to ensure that combustible dusts are removed safely.
