Combustible Metals: the NFPA Revises Its Standard 484

NFPA 484 Combustible Metal Dust

This year, the NFPA tackled combustible metals by revising its Standard 484. The 158 pages of that document contain some good advice. Our favourite: always trust a dust collection expert to confirm the safety of your facilities!

So we decided to put that recommendation into practice starting now by giving you the details of the new aspects in this edition.
