New Combustible Dust Microsite Answers Manufacturers
Submitted by: Nilfisk CFM
(OPENPRESS) August 8, 2009 -- Ever since finely ground motes of sugar caused a tragic explosion at a sugar factory in Savannah, GA, killing 14, combustible dust has been wavering as a national headline. Manufacturers have been inundated with information about safety and prevention; but questions still remain. For this reason, Nilfisk CFM, the world's leading industrial vacuum manufacturer, has developed www.explosionproof-vacuum.com, a micro site that specifically addresses the issue of combustible dust in the manufacturing industry, as it relates to maintenance and industrial vacuum cleaners.
Through video, fact sheets, application photos, and links to sites like OSHA's NEP on Combustible Dust, explosionproof-vacuum.com gives manufacturers access to pertinent information regarding combustible dust and fire/explosion prevention.
"Even though the industrial sector is now very aware of the risks of combustible dust, they still have a lot of questions," says Paul Miller, Vice President and General Manager of Nilfisk CFM, North America . "Many manufacturers still aren't sure if the material in their plants is considered "explosive" or if their equipment meets OSHA recommendations. Explosionproof-vacuum.com strives to answer some of those questions as they relate to maintenance procedures and explosion-proof vacuums, providing a one-stop site for manufacturers looking to learn more about combustible dust."
