Dust Collection Systems
Combustible dusts are one of the biggest safety risks for companies that manufacture or convert paper, handle grains, powders, and many other materials. Static electricity, friction and sparks in the production environment are all potential ignition sources for dust and can result in a deadly explosion and fire. That is why dust collection systems like those offered by AESales are a smart investment for companies whose operations expose them to this type of danger.

The National Fire Protection Standard on Explosive Protection by Deflagration Venting (NFPA 68) requires that companies that produce combustible dusts have explosion control equipment associated with their dust collection system and an inspection and remediation plan in place to mitigate the hazard of a dust explosion and fire. OSHA’s National Emphasis Program (NEP) enforces the standard, handing out stiff fines for violations. In short, dust in your facility is nothing to sneeze at.
AES can provide the dust testing and analysis that becomes the basis for the development of a written Risk Assessment Plan as required by NFPA. We help our customers identify risks and compliance issues, and work with them to formulate a plan to bring their systems and processes in full compliance with the prevailing standards.
