YOUR INTRODUCTION TO COMBUSTIBLE DUST

with Donaldson Product Engineering – Manager Melina Diaz Melina-Diaz


WHAT is combustible dust?

“Combustible dust, also known as explosive dust, is made up of fine dust particles that disperse in the air and have the potential to catch fire and/or cause an explosion.”

 

WHERE can combustible dust be found?

“Many production facilities generate, handle, transport, process, or store materials that can create combustible dust.”

 

HOW is combustible dust created?

“Manufacturing processes often create very small particles of dust that may become airborne and settle on surfaces throughout the plant. If these particles are not regularly cleaned, they’re an explosion hazard. ”

 

WHO is responsible for the management of combustible dust?

“It is the responsibility of the process owner to manage combustion risks and it’s essential for them to have a comprehensive plan to mitigate these potential risks.”

 

WHY does combustible dust matter?

“When combustible dust encounters an ignition source, there is the potential for a fire or explosion. That’s why it is essential for any manufacturing operation to understand the properties of combustible dust – and to have a comprehensive plan to manage and mitigate that potential risk.”
