Webinar Details:  Dust collection systems have been involved in approximately 40% of the combustible dust incidents investigated, probably due to their prevalence in bulk solids handing sites . The National Fire Protection Association has specific requirements for dust collection systems in several NFPA standards. This webinar will describe the more common explosion protection equipment used in dust collection systems and list the requirements for dust collection systems from hoods to exhaust fans and recirculation, including wet as well as dry collectors. 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.
