By Matej Menčík, Richard Kuracina, Zuzana Szabová and Karol Balog

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to approximate danger of dust clouds normally occur by determining their explosion characteristics. Nowadays, dusty environment is phenomenon in the industry. In general, about 70% of dust produced is explosive. Dust reduction in companies is the main purpose of the national and European legislative. Early identification and characterization of dust in companies may reduce the risk of explosion. It could be used to identify hazards in industrial production where an explosive dust is produced. For this purpose several standards for identification and characterization of explosion characteristics of industrial dust are being used

Topics: dust clouds, explosion characteristics, dust explosion, minimum ignition energy, maximum explosion pressure
