Combustible dust is a threat to industries around the world – putting not only your employees and any visitors to your facility at risk, but also the facilities and equipment themselves. If not handled properly and effectively, combustible dust could affect your day-to-day operations.
Combustible dust is such a hazard that the NFPA standards, enforced by OSHA, dictate the approved vacuum cleaners for combustible dust collection. Using these special cleaners is a mandatory requirement. Many insurance agencies and local fire codes set the NFPA standards as code, which makes proper combustible dust collection even more important.
You can rely on our team of combustible dust cleaning experts in SC to properly and safely collect combustible dust. Ensure the safety of your employees, visitors, and facility with our combustible dust cleaning services.
What Makes Combustible Dust?
Combustible dust is any dust – organic, metallic, or inorganic – that contains particles that are extremely flammable. Because of this extreme flammability, a large enough quantity of dust can catch fire and be fatal to building occupants and cause extensive damage to your facility and equipment.
Combustible dust can come from just about anything – solid organic materials, metals, and even some nonmetallic inorganic materials. Organic materials like flour, sugar, grain, and wood can even become combustible dust. These materials can create combustible dust without you even knowing it has been created.
Thus, when it comes to combustible dust, it is imperative that it be safely contained, collected, and then disposed of outside of the facility in order to minimize the threat of fire.
