 Introduction to Combustible Dust Hazards WebinarTelgian Engineering & Consulting’s Hannah Murray will present the Fire Smarts “Introduction to Combustible Dust Hazards Webinar” on Thursday, October 12, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern. This course covers the fundamentals of combustible dust hazards, strategies to mitigate this risk, and a look at the NFPA standards addressing this hazard with the soon to be published, NFPA 660 ‘Standard for Combustible Dusts’.

Murray will discuss the elements that can create a deflagration hazard such as dust particle material, particle size, atmospheric concentration and conditions, electricity, chemistry, architecture, and interior design. Additionally, an overview of how to perform a dust hazard analysis, considering an additive manufacturing environment will be provided.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what combustible dust is, where is it created, and how historical deflagrations have formed.
  • Learn some of the mechanisms to mitigate dust collection and deflagration in NFPA 484, 652, and 654 (soon to be combined into NFPA 660).
  • Describe dust hazard analysis and potential industry challenges that will need to be addressed in the future.
