In this case study Fauske & Associates, LLC, world leader in chemical and nuclear process safety, highlights a deflagration incident (explosion) that occurred at a wood pellet manufacturing plant. A hot ember from a smoldering nest traveled into the pellet cooler ducting. This initiated a combustible dust deflagration and led to subsequent fires.
