Dust explosions are a very complex phenomenon. Simulating the boundary conditions of an industrial-scale observation in a laboratory is very difficult. Therefore, discrepancy exists between experimental methods, tools, and approaches. This discrepancy has led to the absence of a reliable tool/model that can be used to reasonably scale-up laboratory observations for industrial applications. To obtain adequate knowledge of dust properties, several sources of information should be consulted to include the history of previous incidents.

About the Chemical Processing Process Safety Series
The need for process safety in the chemical industry is paramount. Technical knowledge and understanding of hazards and risks associated with operations in addition to the implementation of that knowledge into practice are the keys to keeping workers and the environment safe. Chemical Processing’s Process Safety webinar series aims to address best practices by covering the major areas within process safety to improve process safety performance.
The late Dr. M. Sam Mannan, PE, CSP, DHC, regents professor and director, Mary Kay O' Connor Safety Center, worked with the editors of Chemical Processing to create this series. He served as the expert presenter for each webinar until his death in 2018.
