Dust Collection: Closing the Gap – Effective Fugitive Dust Source Control, 9/10
CD of live broadcast 9/14/10
Some of the larger combustible dust catastrophes were fueled by significant accumulations of fugitive dust in the workplace. These could have been prevented with effective dust collection at the dust sources.
This webinar will outline how providing dust collection is an important element of an overall combustible dust gap analysis strategy, describe the more common solids handling dust sources, and provide practical methods to reduce dusting and provide more reliable dust collection system performance.
