  • Specialists in Preventing Secondary Combustible Dust explosions in addition to assisting in achieving OSHA regulatory compliance
  • MSDS do not address the ignition sensitivity and explosion severity the Combustible Dust Hazard.
  • Electrical systems need to be evaluated whether their safe for use in a potentially explosive combustible dust environment
  • Great Slide bringing up the hazard of letting up to 1/32” accumulate. Also additional dust layers lower the smoldering temperature
  • Great illustrative slide
  • Where are the explosion ventilation panels in these slides?
  • This is great mentioning HVAC
  • This slide is sort of hazy. Send me the original picture and I’ll clean it up
  • Another hazy slide. Please send the original for editing
  • Another great addition mentioning Lab fume hoods
  • This slide also needs editing. Please send original and I’ll edit.
  • This is great mentioning heat exchangers
  • Great conclusion slide

    2. 2. Got Dust? Significant accumulation of particulate dust at the ceiling of production facility.
    3. 3. Show Me The Dust! Significant accumulation of dust within an HVAC duct system.
    4. 4. Initial Combustible Dust Hazards <ul><li>Manufacturing facilities need to Test/Evaluate Combustible Dust/Particulate, in all areas with the presence of dust. MSDS do not address the Combustible Dust Hazard. </li></ul><ul><li>Most manufacturing facility's Housekeeping or Custodial staff are not typically trained, nor equipped for safe cleaning procedures, proper containment, recycling, and disposal of Combustible Dust/Particulate. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Facility Awareness <ul><li>Combustible Dust must be contained at the source. </li></ul><ul><li>A simple spark from a Forklift contacting a concrete floor, could set off an explosion. </li></ul><ul><li>Static Electricity may also set off an explosion. </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical systems need to be evaluated. </li></ul>
    6. 6. Contain The Source! Accumulation of dust particulate buildup inside a filter chamber of an HVAC system.
    7. 7. Why 1/32 of an Inch of Dust? <ul><li>Any amount of Dust accumulation, on any surface or piece of equipment, acts as an insulator. </li></ul><ul><li>This added insulation of dust may cause manufacturing, electronics and other equipment to heat up and breakdown. </li></ul><ul><li>Added insulation of dust may also cause Electric and Utility costs to increase and may cause Fire Suppression Systems to fail. Is that a high Return On your Investment? </li></ul><ul><li>Insurance Companies require a clean facility and equipment to keep rates down and to ensure decreased liability from hazards. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Dust Collectors <ul><li>Dust Collectors - designed to capture dust and particulate at the source. </li></ul><ul><li>So why so much dust? </li></ul><ul><li>1) Broken or Leaking seals/gaskets </li></ul><ul><li>2) Clogged ductwork/piping </li></ul><ul><li>3) Filters and bags are clogged, torn, undersized, or “missing” </li></ul><ul><li>4) Not enough CFM pull, from exhaust fans </li></ul><ul><li>5) Preventative Maintenance Program/ Housekeeping is non-existent </li></ul>
    9. 9. Diagram of Dust Collector
    10. 10. Dust Collectors
    11. 11. HVAC Systems <ul><li>HVAC Air Conveyance Systems - designed to filter and deliver conditioned air. </li></ul><ul><li>So why so much dust in HVAC Systems? </li></ul><ul><li>1) Dust Collector and other production equipment emitting heavy concentrations of dust and particulate into the air. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Clogged ductwork/piping </li></ul><ul><li>3) Filters are clogged, undersized, not installed properly, torn or “missing” </li></ul><ul><li>4) Not enough CFM pull, from exhaust fans </li></ul><ul><li>5) Preventative Maintenance Program/ Housekeeping is non-existent </li></ul>
    12. 12. Diagram of HVAC System
    13. 13. HVAC System
    14. 14. HVAC Rooftop Unit and Ductwork
    15. 15. Lab Fume Hoods <ul><li>Lab Fume Hoods - designed to remove carbon, smoke, particulate, and vapors from lab workspaces. </li></ul><ul><li>Why decreased draw or decreased face velocity? </li></ul><ul><li>1) Dust Collector emitting heavy concentrations </li></ul><ul><li> of dust and particulate into the air </li></ul><ul><li>2) Clogged Fume Hood, ductwork/piping </li></ul><ul><li>3) Filters are clogged, undersized, or “missing” 4) Not enough CFM pull, from exhaust fans </li></ul><ul><li>5) Preventative Maintenance Program/ Housekeeping is non-existent </li></ul>
    16. 16. Diagram of Lab Fume Hood
    17. 17. Lab Fume Hood
    18. 18. Heat Exchanger <ul><li>Heat Exchanger and Portable heaters - designed to heat air in designated work area space. </li></ul><ul><li>Why so much dust on heat exchanger or not enough heat? </li></ul><ul><li>1) Dust Collector emitting heavy concentrations </li></ul><ul><li> of dust and particulate into the air </li></ul><ul><li>2) Airborne Dust in high concentrations </li></ul><ul><li>3) Improper installation of Heat Exchanger (too close to ceiling, or another surface </li></ul><ul><li>4) Preventative Maintenance Program/ Housekeeping is non-existent </li></ul>
    19. 19. Heat Exchanger
    20. 20. Health Concerns and Indoor Air Quality, with Any Dust <ul><li>Lungs and heart - become congested, decreased blood flow to body. Many types of diseases and disabilities to occur, short term and long term exposure, increase in Sick Days </li></ul><ul><li>Eyes - unsafe working conditions, may lead to accidents, increase in Sick Days </li></ul><ul><li>Fatigue - workers may decrease productivity, may lead to an accident, increase in Sick Days </li></ul><ul><li>Insurance - Increase in Workmen’s Compensation, Short term and Long term disability, Increase in Liability insurance </li></ul><ul><li>PPE - Increase use of PPE, may increases costs </li></ul>
    21. 21. Maintenance Issues With Dust <ul><li>Lighting is decreased </li></ul><ul><li>More Electric or Power is required, as a result - Utilities are increased </li></ul><ul><li>Decreased safety awareness, lower employee morale </li></ul>
