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.
