|Here is a good article By DeAnna Stephens from Pallet Enterprise, |
featuring commentary by Bob Moore, chairman and CEO of
Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS), and Kurt Ruchala,
principal engineer at FirePro.
This article outlines some basic and simple solutions when it comes to
protecting your plant, production processes, and personnel from fires
and explosions, in any industry.
Additionally, I would add to protect your dust collection systems with
spark detection and extinguishing systems, as well as sprinkler or deluge
systems at the minimum. Additionally consider explosion venting, isolation
or suppression systems as needed, and as referenced by NFPA,
OSHA and FM Global.
