Combustible Dust Hazards
Know your risk to prevent dust explosions with the help of our combustible dust services
Organizations that are aware of the hazards of combustible dusts and how to manage or eliminate the dangers they pose can effectively avoid the catastrophic effects of dust explosions: loss of life and property, injury, damages, interrupted production, litigation and adverse publicity. Unfortunately, these incidents occur all too frequently, indicating a lack of sensitivity to the topic and perhaps a lack of access to appropriate expertise.

- Group Go/NoGo Classification determines whether a powder or dust is explosible (Type Go) or non-explosible (Type No Go) when exposed to an ignition source when in the form of a dust cloud.
- Minimum Ignition Energy (MIE):determines the minimum energy of an electrostatic or mechanical spark capable of igniting dispersed dust under ambient conditions.
- Minimum Ignition Temperature (Cloud): determines the minimum temperature of a hot surface capable of igniting a dust cloud.
- Minimum Ignition Temperature Layer (MIT Layer): determines the minimum temperature of a hot surface capable of igniting a powder layer (5 mm in depth).
- Limiting Oxygen Concentration (LOC): determines the highest oxygen concentration at which ignition of dispersed dust at ambient temperature and pressure is not possible.
- Minimum Explosible Concentration (MEC): determines the minimum concentration of a dust at which ignition is possible.
- Dust Explosion Severity: measures a powder’s explosion severity according to specific pressure parameters
