What is a ComDust Hazard?
Different sources report that 70 - 80% of process dust and fines are combustible, depending on the process and material variables. Keys are understanding your process hazards, the combustibility of your material and fines. But remember, processes are not static. Processes and materials change over time. Education, hazard awareness, testing, training, process design, controls, maintenance, housekeeping, policies and procedures are keys to long term process safety.
