The NFPA’s Industrial Fire Hazards Handbook states, “any industrial process that reduces a combustible material and some normally noncombustible materials to a finely divided state presents a potential for a serious fire or explosion.” Use the Facility Dust Hazard Assessment mobile app to evaluate natural and synthetic organic materials that can form combustible dusts. Dust is defined as “solid particles generated by handling, crushing, grinding, rapid impact, detonation, and decrepitation of organic or inorganic materials, such as rock, ore, metal, coal, wood, and grain.”1 A wide range of particle sizes is produced during a dust-generating process. Particles that are too large to remain airborne settle out, while the smallest ones remain suspended in air indefinitely. Dusts are measured in micrometers (commonly known as microns or μm). The micrometer is a unit of length equal to 10-4 (0.0001) centimeter or approximately 1/25,000 of an inch. Red blood cells are 8 μm (0.0008 cm) in size; human hair is 50–75 μm in diameter and cotton fiber, 15–30 μm.

Don't take our word for it...

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
