Dust Collection: Dust Collection Systems That Meet NFPA Requirements, 9/13
CD of live broadcast 9/17/2013
Dust collection systems have been involved in approximately 40 percent of the combustible dust incidents investigated, probably because of their prevalence in bulk solids processing and handling sites.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) identifies specific requirements for dust collection systems in several NFPA standards. The NFPA standards have been changed in the last year, so this webinar presents the up-to-date requirements for NFPA standards 654, 484, 664, 61, and 91.
This webinar describes the more common explosion protection equipment used in dust collection systems and lists the requirements for dust collection systems, from hoods to exhaust fans and recirculation systems, including both wet and dry collectors.
