How Can Dust Testing Help You Assess Your Risk of Flash Fire/Explosion

When: Wed, Oct 4, 2017 at 2:00pm EST
Location: United States

NFPA 652, The Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust, requires the owner/operator of a facility, where materials that have been determined to be combustible or explosible in nature are present, to conduct a dust hazard assessment (DHA) to evaluate the fire, deflagration and explosion hazards associated with the equipment in the plant and to provide recommendations to manage these hazards. This webinar will focus on a description of the types of tests that can be conducted and how the results can be analyzed in order to effectively determine if a hazard exists and, if this is the case, how to effectively manage the risk.

Best Practices for the Management of Electrostatic Hazards of Powders and Liquids

When: Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 2:00pm EST
Location: United States

Electrostatic energy is everywhere; in our home, car and factory. This energy can be a minor nuisance or it can be particularly deadly when discharged in combination with the right flammable atmosphere. This webinar shall outline the background of how electrostatic energy manifests itself as an ignition source. Then we’ll provide practical best practices for avoidance and management of electrostatic ignition hazards.
