Portable, Indoor, Outdoor Dust Collection Primer from NADCA

This video from NADCA National Die Cast Association is a great primer on portable, inside, and outside Dust Collectors. While they mention aluminum dust hazards, this video tutorial is applicable to all types of processes.

This is a segment from nadca’s online Combustible Dust Training Course Portable dust collectors: – Cyclones are less hazardous than bag or media-type – Dry collectors required to be outdoors – Bag collectors with aluminum = eventual explosion can be expected Avoid letting aluminum impact oxidized iron – Thermite reaction is possible – Enough heat to produce molten iron! Attach ground wires to bags and securely ground.
