Dust Control in the Chemical Processing Industries
The prevention of dust hazards in the CPI is integral to process-safety management — wide-reaching mitigation schemes must be implemented
Walter S. Kessler, Chilworth Technology, Inc.
Dust in the chemical processing industries presents potential safety hazards in numerous operations. An integral industry-safety issue arises when we consider the handling and suppression of the dust and particulate matter associated with these processes, namely preventing the formation of combustible clouds that can create a fire hazard or even trigger an explosion. Protecting workers from the dangers of potentially dusty environments, including contact irritations and inhalation exposure, is an important factor in determining the methods and extent to which the particulate matter or dust needs to be suppressed or eliminated.This article describes the sources and mitigation of dust hazards and also covers some recent standards and regulations in the area of dust control....
