Analysis of susceptibility to ignition of dust layer and dust cloud of selected hardened
unsaturated polyester resins (in English)
Polimery 2014, No 11-12, 805
In the article there were described combustible properties of selected dust types formed of plastic materials. Those properties decide on fire and explosion hazard for dust in layer and in cloud, according to PN-EN 50281-2-1:2002. The article also consists of safety requirements concerning using appliances in explosion hazard areas, according to PN-EN 50281-1-2:2002. In the article there are presented results of investigations on minimal ignition temperature of layer (MITL) and minimal ignition temperature of dust cloud (MITDC) as a function of dust layer thickness of chosen industry dust with different addition of modification and values of maximum acceptable surface temperature (MAST) of machines operating in the presence of dust cloud and chosen dust layer with thickness of 5 and 12.5 mm.
