NFPA 652 improves uniformity to the industry specific combustible dust standard and defines standards for fire, flash fire and explosion hazards. Why was NFPA 652 developed? The NFPA 652 standard complements NFPA 654 by providing more specific guidelines on general dust combustibility and when to use those standards for all

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 654: Standard for the Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions from the Manufacturing, Processing and Handling of Combustible Particulate Solids and NFPA 454: Standard for Combustible Metals, Metal Powders and Metal Dusts both define combustible dust as "any finely divided solid
NFPA 652 requires all facilities that process, generate, or handle combustible dust, and use less complex dust collection systems to perform a DHA and risk assessment for each process line that handles or creates combustible dust, including the dust
Increased Coal Dust Leads to Decreased Explosion Risk Coal dust is created when coal is crushed, grinded or pulverized. If suspended in the air outside of a controlled environment of grinding and combustible equipment, coal dust is hazardous.
