The Roland Mill in Bremen, Germany, was destroyed by a flour dust explosion, killing 14 and injuring Custard dust that had accumulated in the factory ceiling and rafters blew down to create a dust cloud, which then exploded at a Bird’s Custard factory in Banbury, England. The explosion blew the roof off the building. As correspondent Scott Pelley reports, devastating dust explosions at American factories are more common now than ever. Since , there have been at least such explosions .
• Catastrophic dust explosions have placed an increased emphasis on the prevention and mitigation of dust explosions. • Standards and guidelines provide guidance for the prevention and mitigation of dust fires and explosions. • NFPA guidelines for preventing and mitigating explosions focus on: – Hazard Identification – Dust Hazard. The technical definitions for combustible dust vary. In Canada, the Hazardous Products Regulation (WHMIS ) defines combustible dust as " a mixture or substance that is in the form of finely divided solid particles that, upon ignition, is liable to catch fire or explode when dispersed in air".. Another example is Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety Code which defines combustible dust.
