Is Your Factory Safe From A Dust Collector Explosion?

The danger of explosion from combustible dust is high. Your facility and employees could be at risk.

Examples of combustible dust are food ingredients (sugar, spice, starch, flour, grain), metals (magnesium, aluminum, chromium, iron, zinc), paper, pulp, plastics, textiles, bio solids, wood, rubber, dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticides and even soap, to name a few.
