Dust explosion is one of the most massive disasters in the process industries. When the company process plant involve with dust it is difficult to handle as the dust is very fine particle and hard to contain. In this project, it refer to incident happened in Imperial Sugar Refineries, where dust explosion had happened in 2008. In conjunction with dust explosion incident, this project will study on the minimum ignition energy for dust fire and explosion. Mainly, the study will be focusing on the food dust samlples. The study will be done by conducting several experiments on the factors which can initiate the dust fire and explosion. The factors will be studies in this project are the size of the dust and type of the dust. The dusts used in this study are from the food processing industries which is flour and sugar. At the end of study, the minimum ignition energy from each type of dust sample will be determined.
