In the s, the explosibility of methane, hydrogen, and other combustible gases was recognized by the scientific and industrial community, but few scholars considered the possibility of a dust by:

    Dust explosions do not need large amounts of fuel to propagate. In his book [2], Eckhoff underlines that even a 1 mm layer can create a dust explosion hazard in a typical room. This has been confirmed experimentally by Tamanini [3], who carried out a series of cornstarch explosion tests in a full-scale gallery equipped with several vent panels. Hazard Alert: Combustible Dust Explosions Combustible dusts are fine particles that present an explosion hazard when suspended in air in certain conditions. A dust explosion can be catastrophic and cause employee deaths, injuries, and destruction of entire buildings. In many combustible dust incidents, employers and employees were unaware that.   The dust accumulated above a suspended ceiling where it couldn’t be seen by workers. Thus, despite rigorous housekeeping practices, the hazard remained. Photo credit: U.S. Chemical Safety Board.

    This page gives a summary of dust explosion incidents broken down by geometry including date, location, type of dust, and loss. In addition to having held the C.D. Howe Chair in Process Safety, Dr. Amyotte has written several books, book chapters, and over papers; his noted accomplishments include Dust Explosions, Understanding the Myths and Realities of Dust Explosions for a Safer Workplace and the second edition of Process Plants: A Handbook for Inherently Safer.   It’s when the dust goes airborne that danger levels crank up, he says. It was a buildup of dust on unseen flat surfaces that is believed to have caused the secondary explosion in the Imperial Sugar disaster, Scott says. The initial blast shook the dust into the air . The aim of this book is to provide a guide describing conditions in industry that could lead to dust explosions and the means to avoid them. Ignition sources and the way in which they can arise in powder processing are discussed and illustrated by case histories of reported : Springer US.
