EMSL Releases Combustible Dust Poster

EMSL Analytical is a full service indoor air quality and industrial hygiene laboratory.

 
PRLog - Jun. 21, 2012 - EMSL is pleased to announce the release of a new Combustible Dust Testing poster available for distribution on the company’s website: www.EMSL.com.

The poster is free and is a great informational resource for those in industries with combustible dust hazards, including food, grain, wood, pulp, paper, plastics, pharmaceutical, rubber, metals and fossil fuel power generation.

The poster includes a complete list of the common sources of combustible dust, dust control measures, ignition control measures, prevention, and protection measures.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) acknowledges that any combustible material, and some materials normally considered noncombustible, can burn rapidly when in a finely divided form. The agency states that if such a dust is suspended in air in the right concentration, it can become explosive.

The force from these explosions results in deaths, injuries, and the destruction of entire buildings. Combustible dust explosions have killed scores of employees and injured hundreds over the past few decades.  

“EMSL Analytical offers testing solutions for OSHA’s compliance directive for combustible dusts,” states Joseph Frasca, Senior VP of Marketing at EMSL. “The Core Combustible Dust Module includes the following tests: percent through 40 mesh, percent moisture content, percent combustible material, percent combustible dust and sample weight.”

Additional testing also available includes:
•   Resistivity (metal dusts)
•   Minimum explosive concentration (MEC)
•   Minimum ignition energy (MIE)
•   Class II Test
•   Maximum normalized rate of pressure rise [(dP/dt) – Kst] Test
•   Minimum ignition temperature
