Common hazards associated with metal production

Fire or explosion hazard caused by a pyrophoric reaction of very fine metal dust such as Titanium, Magnesium, Zirconium, etc

Dust cloud formation inside dust collectors, which could present a deflagration hazard

Dust cloud formation during the transfer of metal dust into bins, which could present a fire or flashfire hazard in the presence of credible ignition sources

Fire hazard due to thermite reaction, that is, collecting iron (III) oxide and aluminum in the same dust collector

Inadequate dust containment and housekeeping at metal processing areas such as sanders, routers, deburring, cutters, oxidation operation, melting, and shapers could present fire or flashfire hazards
