This live online seminar has been derived from the SFPE two-day course. It is for the practicing fire protection engineer, risk manager or plant engineer who is dealing with industrial sites that handle combustible particulate solids. This course covers the chemistry and physics of dust deflagrations, the process and progress of dust explosions, recognition of a dust explosion hazard when confronted with one, and a review of the means by which the dust explosion hazard can be managed in both a prescriptive and a performance-based design environment, including electrical code compliance, deflagration venting, active deflagration suppression and active deflagration isolation. Several sample problems will be included as part of the course content.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Recognize a dust explosion hazard when encountered
  • Develop a hazard management strategy. Locate and review the practices, standards and guidelines used to reduce the potential for a combustible dust explosion or reduce the severity of an explosion if one occurs.
  • Identify combustible dust hazards, recognize equipment related hazards, and categorize hazardous locations.
  • Identify potential adverse effects of dust explosion protection systems
  • Evaluate various tools and methods available to assist in preparing a fire risk assessment and determine the appropriate one to be used for a given project.
