Summary "In all the diverse industries-from food and agriculture to plastics- where combustibledust exists, the possibility of an explosion looms as an ever-present threat. Gathering awealth of practical, theoretical, and experimental data, this important work provides a?state-of-the-art study of the Development and Control of Dust Explosions, promotingimproved control over such hazards.Comprehensive in scope, this single-source reference presents invaluable guidelines for awide variety of planning and operational activities, including calcu lation of explosionpressure and vent area required to minimize explosion damage ... the development ofmathematical mode ls used in the evaluation of explosion phenomena . .. determinationof the effect of numerous factors on explosion development ... and control and preventionof the ignition of dust by eliminating the fines in a product. With this outstanding book, industrial, safety, mechanical, manufacturing, loss prevention, fire protection, and chemical engineers; as well as plant managers, operators, anddesigners ; and all other specialists concerned with the possibility of dust exp losions nowhave an authoritative reference. The book also serves as the basis for further research inthis important field. In addition, the unique range of data included makes th is volumeideal for in-house training programs, professional seminars, and college-level coursesstudying explosion safety and safety engineering ."--Provided by publisher.
