Mitigating Dust Collector Combustible Dust Hazards

You already know that dust collection systems present a high risk of combustible dust explosions. That’s why they are addressed by OSHA’s National Emphasis Program for combustible dust. But do you know how to identify these hazards in your facility, and what steps you need to take to be compliant? This white paper by Camfil APC reviews the OSHA NEP, the NFPA standards to limit explosion hazards. It also discusses the need for dust testing and a dust hazard analysis, the types of equipment used for explosion protection, and important housekeeping guidelines to keep dust collectors operating safely.
