Benetech striving for a dust free work environment

Combustible airborne dust that escapes during bulk material flow represents a major threat to both people and property. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines combustible dusts as “fine particles that present an explosion hazard when suspended in air in certain conditions” (i.e. a high concentration in an enclosed space where heat and oxygen are present).

Benetech, Inc. has been taking the lead in developing solutions for a dust-free work environment and a safe material flow for bulk material handling companies.

Combustible airborne dust that escapes during bulk material flow represents a major threat to both people and property. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines combustible dusts as “fine particles that present an explosion hazard when suspended in air in certain conditions” (i.e. a high concentration in an enclosed space where heat and oxygen are present). A dust explosion can result in significant physical harm, as well as damaged relations between a bulk material handler and its community.

In many events involving a dust explosion, business operators and staff are not aware of the developing danger. Just a few industries often at risk of combustible airborne dust include agriculture, chemicals, fertilizers, wood/forestry, paper and pulp, furniture and coal.

“We devote great resources to developing products, services and technologies that minimise airborne dust and ensure material flow safety,” said Benetech Vice President Paul Moran. “As specialists in dust filtration, containment and suppression, we provide what bulk material handlers need to reduce dust spillage, dispersion and accumulation. This leads to working environments that are much more secure, as well as greater regulatory compliance.”
