Image - Explosion Protection for Dust CollectorsExplosion Protection for Dust Collectors

Metalworking processes like grinding, buffing and polishing create dust that can be an explosion hazard when it builds up in the air or on surfaces and floors. The intense heat and sparks produced by these processes can be an ignition source for combustible dust fires and explosions. This Q&A provides important information about identifying and complying with combustible metal dust hazards.
