Dust Explosion Risk Reduction – Case Studies module 1 - Pharmaceutical granulation, fluid bed drying and mill
This series of 4 case studies covers the reduction of risks from dust explosion making use of the DERReK methodology that is presented in the IChemE/BPE Dust Explosion online training modules. Each case study will demonstrate how the methodology works and how it can be applied to different potential dust explosion problems in different industries.
Module 1: Pharmaceutical granulation, fluid bed drying and mill
- 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
