Dust Explosion Guidance Series
Issue 3: SILO FILLING AND EMPTYING
Every year explosions caused by combustible dust kill workers, damage assets, and leave others badly injured. To prevent these risks, organisations that have the potential to produce explosive dust atmospheres should evaluate the flammability of that dust, the potential it has to form a dust cloud, its sensitivity to ignition, and its explosion limits and explosion severity.
The third in series, this paper focuses on silo fiilling and emptying operations. Focusing on specific unit operation flammability and reactivity risks, this factsheet is intended to provide a really simple guide to reliably ensuring safety.
