Learn the basics of interpreting and applying test data to gain insight into the likelihood of ignition. This learning module is ideally suited for process safety managers in industries who are at risk for combustible dust such as agriculture, chemicals, food, plastics, paper, and pharmaceuticals.
In this learning module, learners are introduced to the types of combustible dust, the hazards associated with them, as well as the testing needed to minimize or mitigate explosion risk. Explosion severity and minimum ignition energy (MIE) tests are covered in particular.
The presentation illustrates how combustible dust parameters help define severity and consequences. Necessary parameters of the assessments such as Kst, minimum ignition energy (MIE), minimal explosible concentration (MEC), minimum autoignition temperature (MAIT), limiting oxygen concentration (LOC), and high electrostatic resistivity are explained and stated their significance regarding interpreting the data.
The module explores explosion severity tests and their uses in determining the degree of explosibility and designing explosion prevention measure. It then describes how the MIE test provides insight into the likelihood of ignition, assists with risk analyses and identifies hazards when coupled with resistance and chargeability measurements. MAIT tests and how they help the selection of equipment and design are also presented in this module.
This learning module shows how combustible dust parameters help set a background for dust explosion risk analyses as it is a function of both severity and probability.
This learning module is ideally suited for process safety managers in industries who are at risk for combustible dust such as agriculture, chemicals, food, plastics, paper, and pharmaceuticals.
