The material in this book offers an up to date evaluation of prevalent activities, testing methods, design measures and safe operating techniques. Also provided is a detailed and comprehensive critique of all the significant phases relating to the hazard and control of a dust explosion. An invaluable reference work for industry, safety consultants and students. * A completely new chapter on design of electrical equipment to be used in areas containing combustible/explosible dust * A substantially extended and re-organized final review chapter, containing nearly 400 new literature references from the years 1997-2002 * Extensive cross-referencing from the original chapters 1-7 to the corresponding sections of the expanded review chapter."@en ;
