Dust Explosion Risk Reduction – Case Studies

Dust Explosion Risk Reduction – Case Studies


£235.00 price excludes VAT


This series of 4 case studies covers the reduction of risks from dust explosion making using of the DERReK methodology that is presented in the IChemE/BPE Dust Explosion online training modules (see page 48). Each case study will demonstrate how the methodology works and how it can be applied to different potential dust explosion problems in different industries.

By purchasing all 4 modules, you will gain a better understanding of how the DERReK methodology works.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you will understand:

  • how to reduce the risks by using the DERReK methodology
  • how to apply the methodology to different potential dust explosion problems
  • how to apply the methodology in different industries.

Who will benefit

Safety engineers, managers and all the staff responsible for ensuring compliance with the ATEX regulations. Delegates who attended our Dust Explosions online course and would like to understand the “DERReK” methodology better.

What do you get?

  • Downloads of all modules 
  • Most modules have a FAQ section at the end 
  • Digital copies of slides and supporting materials (PDF) 
  • E-certificate of attendance, including hours allocation for CPD purposes (on request)

Course outline

Module 1:

  • Follows the classic wet granulation, fluid bed drying and milling process
  • Considers typical pharmaceutical mixtures
  • The importance of non-electrical sources of ignition and mitigation of consequences will be a major part of this case study

Module 2:

  • Centred on a US Chemical Safety Board case study
  • Examines differences in approach that the DERReK methodology would highlight compared to the Chemical Safety Board recommendations
  • Highlights how an explosion suppression system works in practice

Module 3: 

  • Reviews the combination of conveying and gravity charging to a silo
  • Assesses changes made to large scale plant in the US that lead to a dust explosion
  • Examines a large scale experiment carried out in Germany and lessons learnt for hazardous area classification

Module 4: 

  • Considers the DERReK methodology in relationship to the refuse separation and drying process
  • Examines whether it is possible to make logical conclusions about the hazardous area classification of parts of the process
  • Considers the possible consequences of any explosion
