Combustible Dust

Finely divided combustible material burn rapidly. In right concentration and under right conditions these combustible materials when exposed to air can lead to an explosion.

Materials such as iron and Aluminium in a large form do not burn easily but in the firm of fine dust under right concentration and under right condition can be combustible and lead to an explosion.

Dust from following material can be combustible under specific conditions:

  • Organic material
    • Wood
    • Egg White (in powdered form)
    • Powdered Milk
    • Powdered Milk
    • Potato
    • Cornstarch
    • Flour
    • Grain
    • Sugar
  • Metals
    • Iron
    • Aluminium
    • Bronze
    • Magnesium
    • Zinc
  • Chemical Dust
    • Coal
    • Sulphur


Any activity in a manufacturing facility that generates dust should be investigated to observe, if the dust is potentially combustible. Under right circumstances dust accumulated on various surfaces such as suspended ceilings, roof, rafters, duct lines, dust collectors and other equipments can lead to an explosion. Such accumulation of dust must be investigated and monitored.

Our Role

Air Mech Industrial Technologies manufacture various types of Combustible Dust Collection systems that can reduce the chances of explosion due to combustible dust particles.
