Dust Explosions in the Process Industries: Identification, Assessment and Control of Dust Hazards
Elsevier, 18 jul. 2003 - 719 pagina's
Unfortunately, dust explosions are common and costly in a wide array of industries such as petrochemical, food, paper and pharmaceutical. It is imperative that practical and theoretical knowledge of the origin, development, prevention and mitigation of dust explosions is imparted to the responsible safety manager. The material in this book offers an up to date evaluation of prevalent activities, testing methods, design measures and safe operating techniques. Also provided is a detailed and comprehensive critique of all the significant phases relating to the hazard and control of a dust explosion. An invaluable reference work for industry, safety consultants and students.

Pagina 21 - This deposit was, in some parts, half an inch, and in others almost an inch thick; it adhered together in a friable coked state; when examined with the glass it presented the fused round form of burnt coal-dust and when examined chemically and compared with the coal itself reduced to powder, was found deprived of the greater portion of the bitumen, and in some cases entirely destitute of it.
Pagina 21 - ... the rush of wind and flame from the floor, roof, and walls of the works would instantly take fire and burn, if there were oxygen enough present in the air to support its combustion ; and we found the dust adhering to the faces of the pillars, props, and walls in the direction of, and on the side towards, the explosion, increasing gradually to a certain distance as we neared the place of ignition.
