Combustible Dust Explosion PentagonIt’s a given across industries where the manufacturing process creates a large amount of dust that it is imperative to keep a close eye on the levels to prevent the risk of an explosion. The most effective way to do this is by having a dust hazard analysis conducted by a reliable and experienced company.


If you have any questions about what a hazard analysis is, the team at XP Products has put together this blog post to provide the facts you need to make an informed decision on this important practice.


A dust hazard analysis, also known as a DHA, is a review that looks systematically at all the areas and processes within your facility where combustible particulate solids can be found. A DHA will help with the identification of possible fire, flash-fire, and explosion hazards at the facility.


And when’s the best time to have a DHA complete, you ask? Ideally, the best time is right away, and regularly so that all risks are identified and minimized. In that way, if there are any changes in your processes, equipment, or materials that cause a change to the dust profile at your location, they can be recognized and dealt with as soon as they are identified. You want to be aware of and reduce any hazards before they become problems.
