Originally published in three volumes by the Institution of Chemical Engineers from 1985 to 1988, this guide formed the first authoritative and comprehensive guide for dust explosion prevention and protection for engineers, scientists, safety specialists, and managers. This guide is a compilation of current best practices for measures to prevent dust explosions from occurring, and, if they do occur, to protect the plant and personnel from their destructive effects by applying the techniques of explosion containment, explosion suppression, and explosion venting.

Included is new material on the containment and venting of dust explosions. This guide helps those responsible for the design, supply, and operation of process plants to comply with the provisions of health and safety legislation. Dust explosions can occur anywhere where combustible powders are handled, such as coal, wood, flour, starch, sugar, rubber, plastics, some metals, and pharmaceuticals.

Three classic volumes combined into one handy guideContains all of the best practices for preventing dust explosionsIncludes in-depth material that outlines how to protect the plant and its resources from explosions
