Example text

There has been a limited amount of work carried out on the ignition of dust clouds by these sources and no recognized methods for characterizing dust clouds with respect to their sensitivity to the different forms of ignition sources produced by friction and impact are known. There are several different ways in which the dust cloud can be ignited by mechanical ignition sources. In flammable gas situations, potential ignition mechanisms are the heated contact area produced by rubbing or impact, and any hot particles of the contacting materials that are projected into the gas/air mixture.

Some dusts however can char or degrade but do not produce smouldering or flaming combustion in the form of a layer, even though they may explode as a cloud. This may have a beating on equipment selection. It may also be necessary to consider the possibility that a dust layer on equipment acts as insulation, causing the equipment to overheat, and develop a fault. Further advice on zoning is contained in prEN 50281 Part 3. (This was distributed for final voting with a closing date of June 2001.
