Combustible dust explosions are a risk in many areas of a food processing plant, but one of the most common locations is the dust collection system. How do you know if your dust collection system complies? What do you do if it doesn’t? Are your employees at risk?
This white paper reviews the OSHA National Emphasis Program for combustible dust, the NFPA standards that address how to prevent or limit explosion hazards, how to identify these hazards, and the types of equipment used for explosion protection. It will also examine the most common shortfalls to compliance and how to avoid them.
