Nilfisk launches combustible-dust website

Morgantown, PA -- Food manufacturers know all too well that sugar and spice aren't all that nice when it comes to combustible dust. Processing potentially explosive materials such as flour and grains, many food plants are considered high-risk for a combustible dust accident and related OSHA fines. For this reason, Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums has launched, a website that specifically addresses the issues of combustible dust and food safety hazards in the food industry.

Through video, fact sheets, application photos and links to sites like OSHA's NEP on Combustible Dust, the new website gives manufacturers access to pertinent information regarding combustible dust, fire/explosion prevention and other food safety hazards.

"Even though the industrial sector is now very aware of the risks of combustible dust, they still have many questions," said Paul Miller, Vice President and General Manager of Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums. "Many manufacturers still aren't sure if the material in their plants is considered explosive or if their equipment meets OSHA recommendations. Our new website strives to answer some of those questions as they relate to maintenance procedures and explosion-proof vacuums, providing a one-stop site for food manufacturers looking to learn more about combustible dust and food safety hazards."
