   » Removing any one of these elements of the classic fire triangle eliminates the possibility of a fire.
   » Unlike a dust fire, a dust explosion requires two additional factors such as confinement and dispersion.
   » When the dust is disturbed, there is the potential for a serious explosion to occur under the right circumstances. A primary dust explosion can occur when a dust suspended within a container, room or piece of equipment is ignited. A secondary (often more powerful) explosion can occur when dust accumulated on floors or other surfaces is disrupted and lifted into the air and ignited by the primary explosion. The buildup of even a very small amount of dust can cause serious damage.
   » Dust can collect on surfaces such as rafters, roofs, suspended ceilings, ducts, crevices, dust collectors, and other equipment.Housekeeping is very important, especially in facilities that generate dust within their processes. The buildup of even very small amounts of dust can cause serious damage if an event were to occur.
