    Dust Concentration Levels

    It's easy to see dust in the atmosphere, but is there any published information regarding the dust levels that have actually been measured around and inside materials handling equipment?

    Yes. Talk to Benetech. They have instruments that can record levels of dust that are not observable by the naked eye and give aid in dust control.

    Literature on Dust

    I suggest you also have a look at the eLibrary on this website and search for keywords like "dust". I am sure some interesting article headlines will come up copies of which could be ordered.

    Dust concentration levels

    Many medium to large organisations involved in bulk materials handling (i.e., in creating dust) will have an OHS department which monitors the dust levels in the workspace.

    This provides a data base for the sort of infomation you are looking for. At the sort of concentrations which will allow deflagrations to occur however, the infomation may be sensitive and difficult to obtain.
