Dust in a grain stream

WE ARE IN A DILEMMA. An article about dust explosion prevention in one of your recent issues gave the percentage of dust in a grain stream as 0.1% to 0.5%.

We know about the dependent relationship of grade, humidity and dirtiness regarding the percentage of dust inside a grain stream. The question we have is, are there any general experiences or results of surveys regarding the enclosed dust and the suspended dust in railway unloading facilities?

A difficult question; we hope we can find the answer from your readers.
