What products have the potential to create a combustible dust explosion?

If your company provides these products and others, it is vital that you allow the First Environmental team to manage your dust. Dust explosions occur often, yet are very preventable! The following products are just a few examples of material that have the potential for a dust explosion when in powder form:

  • Agricultural products such as sugar, wheat, and soy flour.
  • Agricultural dusts such as cocoa powder, corn meal, and garlic powder.
  • Chemical dusts such as sulfur, lactose, and dextrin.
  • Metal dusts such as aluminum, bronze, and magnesium.
  • Plastic dusts such as (poly) acrylamide, (poly) acrylonitrile, and (poly) ethylene.

A dust explosion has the potential to shut down operations, seriously injure workers, or even cause fatalities. Take preventative measures to ensure this doesn’t happen.
