Dust Explosion Risk Reduction – Case Studies module 3 - Conveying dusty solids into a silo
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 3: Conveying dusty solids into a silo
- 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.
