Maximize Safety When Working With Combustible Dust

May 11, 2022

By: Andy Thomason, Contributor All it takes for a dust explosion to occur at your facility is for oxygen, an ignition source, and a combustible dust cloud to come together in a confined space. If your operation generates dust, you probably already have some mitigation processes in place. However, to ensure that your efforts are…

Comprehensive Combustible Dust Explosion Protection New methods of Explosion Pressure Relief: REMBE® TARGO-VENT

November 18, 2021

Comprehensive combustible dust explosion protection does not necessarily have to be expensive or complicated. An innovative technology makes it possible to divert the shock wave and flames of an explosion in a controlled manner. The result: the required safety area is reduced, so valuable usable area is increased and personnel/equipment are protected from the explosion’s…


For Safety’s Sake: Managing Industrial Dust and Fumes

November 16, 2021

By: Jon Ladwig, Contributor Many industrial manufacturing and processing applications produce dangerous airborne dust or fumes. Facility operators must be diligent in controlling these particles to ensure the health and safety of workers and to maintain regulatory compliance. Dust consists of fine particles of dry, solid matter that are carried in the air and eventually…

Hot Metal Dust – Cool Q-Rohr

July 27, 2021

Metal dusts & explosion safety. An expensive proposition– until now. Metal dust explosions are hot stuff: the combustion temperature and energy are considerable–and considerably higher than those for other types of dust. Temperatures can reach 5400°F or higher, not to mention the other consequences of an explosion such as a sudden pressure rise. As a…

For the original article, go to: https://bit.ly/2OYAw9Z .] If your facility’s manufacturing processes generate hazardous dust, one of your priorities is ensuring air quality. Dust, especially airborne dust particles, must be safely collected and contained to protect worker safety and meet regulatory…


Identify Combustible Dust Risks Lurking at Your Facility

May 18, 2021

By: Andy Thomason, Contributor Many manufacturing and processing operations generate dust particles that can ignite and cause a fire or explosion. Combustible dusts include food ingredients, seed and grain, metals, paper, pulp, plastics, textiles, biosolids, wood, rubber, dyes, pharmaceuticals and pesticides. Because each plant, factory and facility is different, identifying and understanding unique combustible dust…
