Pneumatic conveying equipment and dust control exhaust systems that transport combustible particulate solids need to be protected from fire and dust explosions. If combustible particulate solids are thrown into the workplace air during cleaning or by excessive drafts in the plant, the resulting combustible dust can present a fire hazard if exposed to an ignition source. The program reviews the NFPA standards for combustible dust, problems and solutions.
