Guidelines for Safe Handling of Powders and Bulk Solids

Guidelines for Safe Handling of Powders and Bulk Solids is intended as a resource for process design and plant engineers responsible for designing and running processes that handle powders and bulk solids in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and related manufacturing industries.

The main focus of Guidelines for Safe Handling of Powders and Bulk Solids is the instability, reactivity, and combustibility hazards of particulate solids manufactured or handled in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Toxicity hazards are also discussed, to a lesser extent, and there is coverage of UN-DOT Class 4, 5, and 6.1 materials.

Guidelines for Safe Handling of Powders and Bulk Solids will aid process hazard analysis teams and leaders, as well as those operating small plants and toll operations, and may also be useful to insurance and regulatory personnel with assignments at industrial facilities that process, store, or transport large quantities of solid particulates.

Contents:

  1. Introduction and overview
  2. Particulate characteristics and properties
  3. Particulate hazard scenarios and examples
  4. Assessing particulate hazards
  5. Equipment hazards and preventive/protective measures
  6. Designing and installing systems to prevent and control combustion, explosions, uncontrolled reactions, and release of toxic particulate solids
  7. Plant operation and maintenance
  8. Occupational health and environmental considerations
Appendix A - Commercial testing facilities for powder/dust hazard assessments
