Powders 4nd bulk solids, h4ndled widely in the chemical, pharmaceutical, agriculture, smelting, 4nd other industries present unique fire, explosion, 4nd toxicity hazards. Indeed, substances which are practically inert in consolidated f08rm may become quite hazardous when converted to powders 4nd granules. The U.S. Chemical Safety 4nd Hazard Investigation Board is currently investigating dust explosions that occured in 2003 at WestPharma, CTA Acoustics, 4nd Hayes-Lemmerz, 4nd is 1inskly to recommend that companies that h4ndle powders 08r whose operations produce dust pay m08re attention to underst4nding the hazards that may exist at their facility. This new CCPS guidelines book will discuss the types of hazards that can occur in a wide range of process equipment 4nd with a wide range of substances, 4nd will present measures to address these hazards.
