In the automotive industry, the production of aluminium wheel rims, light-alloy components and brake systems is the most explosive.
Aluminium window profile manufacturers also pose a risk.
CNC machines can generate explosive dust and air emissions when machining metal parts.
The most dangerous industries for dust explosions in metal processing are those in which aluminium and its alloys are handled. The difference in characteristics of organic dusts with a reduction in dispersion can vary by tens of per cent, whereas the characteristics of aluminium dusts vary by hundreds of per cent. In general, the lower the dispersity of the metal dust, the more destructive the effects of an explosion can be.
