Combustible Dust

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

Materials such as iron and Aluminium in 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 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 and 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 manufactures various types of Combustible Dust Collections systems that can reduce the chances of explosion due to combustible dust particles.
