Dust Testing

Test Explosive Properties of Your Facility’s Dust

Improved industrial safety can start with something as small as a speck of dust, in fact. RSBP’s proprietary Combustion Test Lab offers comprehensive explosibility dust testing, providing invaluable data that ultimately helps protect lives and assets. Contact our team today to receive your dust test results in as few as two weeks.

The Combustion Test Lab provides empirical evidence to factories, chemical plants, grain elevators, paper mills and more about the explosibility characteristics of their facility’s dust. Our testing may come in a 20 liter chamber which is designed to provide accurate measurements that represent real-world, industrial-sized applications
