Farr Air Pollution Control (APC), a manufacturer of dust collectors, recently held a three-day technical training seminar on explosion protection. The seminar, which reviewed the hazards of combustible dusts and how to design entire dust collection systems to NFPA standards, is part of a comprehensive program from Farr APC to help customers prevent dust explosions through correct application of NFPA fire and explosibility standards.

The event featured a two-day presentation by a technical expert from the NFPA, followed by speakers from Fike Corp. on explosion venting
devices and Farr APC on industrial dust collectors. The attendees included engineers, customers, Farr sales representatives and dealers.
