Combustible Dust:

What You Don’t Know Can Be Catastrophic

Is your facility producing combustible dust? If so, what safety measures do you have in place to prevent a dust explosion? Is there a potentially combustible situation at your plant that you may not be aware of?

At RL Kunz, we’ve found that many plants at risk don’t realize they are at risk nor are they aware of the NFPA Standards that apply to their facility or process. Unfortunately, the law is such that even if you are unknowingly in violation, the penalties still apply.

Industrial explosions can occur during the conveying, processing, pulverizing and storage of a wide range of materials. Materials such as cellulose, charcoal, corn, flour, fungicides, grain, milk powders, wood dusts, metal dusts, pharmaceuticals, plastics, resin, starch, sugar and others, under the right conditions, can and will explode.

An explosion in your manufacturing plant or processing facility could have devastating effects. Your process could be shut down for days or even weeks and the loss or productivity could put you in a competitive disadvantage. Your insurance coverage could increase dramatically. Or even worse, your employees could sustain serious or even fatal injuries.

As representatives of IEP Technologies & Hoerbiger Safety Solutions, we have experience in understanding these risks and compliance requirements. We can help you determine if there are potentially combustible areas in your facility or specific application. Then guide you from the planning to the installation of a compliant solution.
