Harpreet Singh , Marwadi education foundation group of institution


Dust explosion is one of the serious problems in industrial. It is impossible to eliminate dust explosion problem, but prevent it by using different method like by using vent holes, Flameless vents etc.


Dust is a common in process industries that manufacture, store and handle particulate material. More than 70% of dusts processed in industries are combustible. Dust explosion regularly occur in process industries, cause serious damage and live loss. Dust explosion was found in literature since 1785 and the records are available from the 20th century. Lot of experiments were done to control explosions occurring in coal mines and other processing industries, but stills explosions are occurring in different countries due to different dusts, these accidents disclose that there are still some technical problems unsolved. Industrial technology in India is similar to develop countries but information relevant to dust explosion occurring in India is almost negligible because in most accidents that occur in India the broad term explosion is used and recorded while the type of explosion goes unpublicized. It is impossible to eliminate dust explosion but it can be reduced by using different methods.
