Dr. Tim Myers, Principal Engineer in Exponent's Natick office, was interviewed this past week by NECN (Boston) regarding colorful dust and its potential for combustibility. Dr. Sean O'Hern assisted Tim with the segment performing a combustible dust test demonstration.
Our thermal science practice has significant experience investigating dust explosions and working with companies analyzing product risk and performance. Exponent's Combustible-Dust Testing Laboratory (CDTL) performs a variety of standard ASTM tests and customized test methods for accident recreation, hazard demonstrations, and hazard assessments. These tests characterize the explosibility, combustibility, and ignitability of dusts and powders.
