Combustible dust-related fires and explosions have been happening since the dawn of manufacturing; and while these accidents are not 100% preventable, manufacturers should not view them as inevitable. Facilities can significantly reduce their risk of a combustible dust accident by instilling the best engineering practices; practices that include a solid maintenance plan in order to reduce or eliminate dangerous dust that settles on floors, walls, machinery, and overhead areas.

This interactive presentation will provide attendees with a basic understanding of the combustible dust issue and discuss critical housekeeping tips and recommendations as they pertain to Nilfisk’s first-hand experiences.

Speaker: Corry Luckenbach – Nilfisk CFM’s Product Manager

Corry Luckenbach works directly with customers and the Nilfisk CFM salesforce to better understand manufacturers’ housekeeping needs and solve their unique challenges. His technical expertise has played a key role in developing Nilfisk CFM’s explosion-proof product line, as well as technical documents and articles that educate and raise awareness on combustible dust. Luckenbach holds a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in manufacturing management

A Q&A session will be held during the last 15 minutes of the Webinar.

Causes and consequences of arc flash are examined, with emphasis on historical data, real accidents, body burn and non-FR vs. FR clothing. Highlights include new HD Super Slow Motion video of arc flashes on real 480V equipment with clothed manikins in typical working positions, leading to a significant leap in understanding the arc flash hazard. Arcs from 0.6 up to 40+ cals will be shown. Hazard analysis and FR clothing performance testing will also be discussed, focusing on the quantification of incident energy and ATPV (or Arc Rating). Changes to NFPA 70E 2012 will be reviewed.

About Our Presenter:
Prior to joining Westex in 2000, Scott M. Margolin was a firefighter for six years, and then spent 10 years at a major multinational chemical company working in two of their flame resistant fiber businesses, including four years leading the flash fire segment. He has conducted over 3,200 flash fires and 1,100 arc flashes in labs in the United States, Canada and Europe. Among this research is groundbreaking work creating arcs in real equipment and utilizing high speed, super slow motion cameras to analyze arc flash and PPE performance. Scott has presented these topics at seminars around the world including North and South America, Europe, Russia, and Australia, and is a member of numerous NFPA and ASTM committees, including 2112, F-18 and F-23.
