Combustible dust is a hidden hazard in many businesses across industries and if left ignored, can lead to catastrophic consequences. These dusts are fine materials, however when dispersed into the air they could catch fire and explode.

Hazardous dust can be from metals, most solid organic materials – such as sugar, flour, grain, wood – and some non-metallic and inorganic materials. The industries that are most commonly affected by combustible dusts are manufacturing, woodworking, agriculture, chemical processing and food processing.  

To keep the risks at bay it is essential that businesses comply with regulatory guidelines such as ATEX directives. When it comes to your electrics and equipment in these specialised areas you must have the correct measures in place.
