Pneumatic Dust Control in Grain Elevators: Guidlines for Design Operation and Maintenance.


PB83129072

Publication Date 1982
Page Count 138
Abstract The danger of dust explosions in grain elevators can be reduced or eliminated only by an effective dust-control program. Such a program includes mechanical housekeeping, manual housekeeping, and various measures that minimize the creation of dust. The only mechanical housekeeping system that is known to be effective is the pneumatic type, however, for several major reasons, such systems have not been designed, fabricated, installed, or maintained properly. This manual addresses the shortcomings of pneumatic dust-collection systems for grain elevators and presents guidelines for designers, installers, and contractors involved with these systems to correct these shortcomings. The manual also contains much information that should be useful to grain-elevator management.
