Dust in a grain stream
February 01, 2001
by Emily Wilson
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.
