Our team works with local facility owners and managers to provide professional combustible dusting services.
Much of the equipment and materials utilized in industrial facilities can produce a lot of different byproducts during normal operation. The production of some materials is concerning, such as combustible dust. According to OSHA, combustible dust refers to all types of solid but finely divided particles that can disperse through the air and explode and catch fire when they’re exposed to an ignition source.
Examples of combustible dusts include:
- Textile fibers (such as cotton)
- Solid organic materials (such as wood, sugar, grain, flour, etc.)
- Most metals
- Carbonaceous materials (such as soot or charcoal)
- Certain inorganic nonmetallic materials
Although these materials may not be combustible in larger states, the particles produced through certain manufacturing or altering methods can explode or burn based on their size and concentration. If your Oshkosh, Wisconsin facility may contain any of these particles, it’s important to keep up with regular combustible dusting services to mitigate risk. Your facility could catch on fire or experience significant damage if any of the particles were to catch on fire or explore. Even a small amount of dust can lead to major problems.
