Dustcon Solutions is short for Dust Consulting Solutions. Specializing in dust explosions, their principle objective is to conduct Dust Hazard Analysis in accordance with the requirements of NFPA 652, Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust. The first step toward ensuring safety from dust hazards for any type of dust and for any industry is to understand three things: Is there a hazard? Where is the hazard? And what can be done about it? A comprehensive DHA provides the answers to these fundamental questions. Dustcon Solutions provides DHA services for all industries handling combustible dust.
The new NFPA 652 Standard requires that a DHA be completed within three years of the effective date of the Standard. That is 3 Years from September 7, 2015. NFPA 652 is applicable to all plants handling combustible particulate solids, irrespective of industry segment or plant size. Recognizing that many plant owners/operators are not familiar with the hazards inherent with combustible dust, Dustcon Solutions was formed to help accomplish this first and most important step toward achieving dust explosion safety.
Dustcon Solutions was started to meet the need for DHA services by all industry segments. With over 20 years of active involvement in the dust explosion protection industry as well as membership on the NFPA Technical Committees responsible for the latest standards pertinent to the dust explosion problem, Dustcon Solutions consultants are in a strong position to provide DHA services.
