Dust explosions have been known in Europe since the first cereal mills were built. There is a risk of
fires and explosions in all industrial plants which have to deal with combustible dusts, whether this be
as production material or as residual waste.
In order to avoid danger to people, plant and the environment, electrical equipment operated in potentially
explosive dust atmospheres may not be a source of ignition.
