Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, mists, vapours or by combustible dusts. If there is enough of the substance mixed with air, then all it needs is a source of ignition to cause an explosion.
Explosions can cause loss of life and serious injuries as well as significant damage. Preventing releases of dangerous substances which can create explosive atmospheres and preventing sources of ignition are two widely used ways of reducing the risk. Using the correct equipment can help greatly with this.
We have many years of experience at minimising the risks of dust explosions.
