• Whats Combustible Dust? Is a finely divided combustible particulate solid that presents a flash fire hazard or explosion hazard when suspended in air or the process-specific oxidizing medium over a range of concentrations.
    • Fire Over time, dust and debris from manufacturing operations collect on overhead pipes, ductwork, light fixtures, structural steel, ceiling plenums, etc. This dust builds up to the point where vibration shakes it loose, possibly contaminating product and production equipment, as well as contributing to poor indoor air quality. Important to keep in mind the combustible dust poses both fire hazard and an explosion hazard. Because of the potential for fire and explosion hazards, any time combustible particulate solids or powders are stored, handled, or used, people and property are threatened.
