Reducing the Risk of Dust Explosions by Controlling Electrical Ignition Sources Webinar

Webinars/Online Events from our friends at Powder/Bulk Solids

Webinars On-Demand:

 

- DryPro 2014 Webcast Series - Reducing the Risk of Dust Explosions by Controlling Electrical Ignition Sources

- When: April 3, 2014 11 am (PDT)/ 2 pm EDT To attend this event or to find out more information, please visit this page.

- This webinar is moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Editor-in-Chief Kevin Cronin.

- Justin Bishop, Ph.D., P.E., CFEI, managing engineer with Exponent
Failure Analysis Associates will talk about how dust explosions are a
potential hazard in bulk solid manufacturing and process facilities.
Electrical ignition sources are routinely identified as a possible cause
during dust explosion investigations. Attend this webinar to learn
about:

Selecting the correct electrical equipment for dusty environments,
and why the installation of the equipment must be directed by the
manufacturer.

Applicable national codes and standards information you need for guidance when selecting electrical equipment.

Real world examples of appropriate and inappropriate electrical equipment installations.

- Jenike & Johanson CEO Herman Purutyan will speak in the latest
of the Powder & Bulk Solids DryPro webinar series. Mechanical
conveyors are used in many industries—mining, minerals, chemicals,
powder, plastics, and food—to transport powders and bulk solids. Belt,
screw, and bucket elevator conveyors are routinely used to move
materials, while providing high throughput and elevation capabilities.
Attend this free webcast to learn about: Belt, screw, and bucket
elevator conveyor features plus examples of conveying applications;
Conveyor system components; Typical conveyor operational capacities;
Important bulk solids properties required for conveyor selection; We
will also examine general capabilities for each conveyor and present a
side-by-side comparison that can help you decide the right system for
your operation.

- Ashok Ghose Dastidar, PhD MBA Vice President, Dust &
Flammability Testing and Consulting Services, Fauske & Associates
LLC discusses measures to reduce the risks of dust explosions, including
effective housekeeping, equipment protection, and electrical area
classification. He also discusses recent incidents investigated by the
US Chemical Safety Board that resulted in government and industry doing
more to mitigate the hazard of dust explosions to protect American
workers as well as a simple methodological approach to tackle the
problem of combustible dust hazard. A Q&A period followed his
discussion.
