Everyone is talking about Explosion Safety and the associated effects in conventional production plants. It’s also an important issue in other areas. One of them is the recycling industry where, during the separation, shredding and processing of combustible materials explosion-prone dusts are created.
The metal components of hoses used in flammable product transfer operations have the potential to accumulate static electricity if they are not bonded to a grounded road tanker truck or vacuum truck. Examples of metal components that have a potential to accumulate hazardous levels of electrostatic charge are end couplings and metal wire helixes that run through the structure of the hose.
How many combustible dust fires and explosions happen every year? Along with generating lessons learned from near-misses and industrial incidents, answering this question is the main purpose of the Combustible Dust Incident Database. Continue reading »
