The consequences of an industrial dust explosion or fire are unthinkable - worker injury, loss of life, property damage, business interruption, and irreversible environmental harm. Few companies realize how many diverse and common industrial applications produce combustible particulates, or where in their facilities this catastrophic threat is settling. What is a combustible dust? “A combustible particulate solid that presents a fire or deflagration hazard when suspended in air or other oxidizing medium over a range of concentrations, regardless of particle size or shape” – NFPA 654? High Risk Applications Metalwork (aluminum, magnesium, or titanium and others) – cutting, grinding, or finishing Ceramics – raw product handling and enamel spray Chemicals – material handling, crushing, grinding, roasters, kilns, and coolers Coal mining – material handling, de-dusting, drying, air cleaning Food (flour, sugar, and others) – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Foundry – sand handling, tumbling mills, abrasive cleaning, and shakeout Pharmaceutical – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Rubber – mixing, grinding, talc dusting, de-dusting, and batch-out rolls Woodwork – woodworking machines, sanding, waste conveying?

Harness the energy that’s inside your biomass! For too long, human and naturally produced substances have been disregarded. Straw, hay, tobacco, nutshells, miscanthus, pulse parings, cotton and flax are valuable resources for heat energy generation. The briquette shape makes your waste more cost effective to transport and ready in a saleable format. The calorific value of highly compressed briquettes is much greater than of lose material also optimising the combustibility characteristics. Additionally, explosive dust can be handled more safely. Efficient re-utilization of biomass as a cheap alternative fuel source cannot be ignored, particularly in the production of agricultural foods.
