Any facility or work environment where dust is generated is at risk of health and safety issues—but dust from chemical processing presents its own unique set of challenges.
During chemical processing, products are created using machining processes that produce hazardous dust. Dust can also be produced through the transportation or handling of materials or by cutting, sifting or mixing applications.
Chemical dust is not only a danger to employees, equipment, and production. It may also be combustible. Combustible dust can be defined as a metallic or non-metallic material that is composed of distinct particles that present a fire or explosion hazard.
When dust particles are released in large quantities within an enclosed building in the presence of oxygen, heat, and fuel, rapid combustion or deflagration can take place.
By implementing dust collection systems employers can minimize the escape of dust from production equipment to protect workers from dangerous dust explosions and various health hazards. Industrial dust collectors also reduce material loss, capture material for recycling or reuse, and prevent cross-contamination.
Any work environment that generates dust is potentially at risk of deflagration. It is important to note that although certain materials may not be considered combustible, they may have the ability to burn or explode if particles are the correct size and concentration.
