Industrial Contractors Forum: Dust Collection and Combustible Dust Projects and Work Opportunities


The Industrial Forum Webinar provided an overview of dust collection systems and work opportunities including the importance of combustible dust awareness. Attendees heard from dust collection experts Tim Osborne and Kyle Yoakum of FIKE Corporation as well as SMACNA contractor member Scott Vidimos of Vidimos, Inc.

A recent NFPA Standard now requires industrial plants and facilities with dust collection hazards to conduct a Dust Hazard Assessment, and dust collection / combustible dust offers SMACNA members a variety of work opportunities. The panel of speakers discussed the systems and processes and provide real life examples of dust collection projects including the importance of proper system design and ducting installations.
