The fully booked practical seminar at Herding Filtertechnik on 10 and 11 September on the subject of fire and explosion protection met with enormous interest from the specialist audience. In particular, the workshop for the joint preparation of the legally prescribed explosion protection document represented a clear added value for the operators. Impressive live demonstrations and comprehensive know-how left no questions unanswered.
Dust/air mixtures can be explosive. Organic dusts from the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, for example, as well as metallic dusts from the metal processing industry are flammable and explosive when swirled up.
