Description

Unfortunately, dust explosions are common and costly in a wide array of industries such as petrochemical, food, paper and pharmaceutical. It is imperative that practical and theoretical knowledge of the origin, development, prevention and mitigation of dust explosions is imparted to the responsible safety manager. The material in this book offers an up to date evaluation of prevalent activities, testing methods, design measures and safe operating techniques. Also provided is a detailed and comprehensive critique of all the significant phases relating to the hazard and control of a dust explosion. An invaluable reference work for industry, safety consultants and students.

Key Features

  • A completely new chapter on design of electrical equipment to be used in areas containing combustible/explosible dust
  • A substantially extended and re-organized final review chapter, containing nearly 400 new literature references from the years 1997-2002
  • Extensive cross-referencing from the original chapters 1-7 to the corresponding sections of the expanded review chapter

Readership

Process Engineers, Safety Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers in the Process Industries, Managers in the Process Industries, Safety Consultants

Table of Contents

Reviews

"This book is an outstanding treatise on all aspects of dust explosions, and will be an invaluable source of information to all process safety/loss prevention specialists involved with dust explosion hazards. Professor Eckhoff is to be highly commended for revising the previous editions to update the book so that it remains relevant and presents the latest developments in the technology." --Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries
