Is your dust explosible?

Whether combustible dust is explosible depends on its physical and chemical properties such as moisture content, particle size, and morphology. The standardized approach in evaluating dust explosibility is to perform a “Go/No-Go” screening test on a representative dust sample — if it’s a “Go,” then further tests are performed to determine key explosibility parameters. These parameters give an indication of potential explosion severity, likelihood of ignition, and other factors necessary for the design of explosion protection systems to establish a basis for safety.
