Various studies have been conducted in the explosion of dusts, and means of preventing, mitigating, and protection against dust explosions have been well documented [68, 81, and 83-90]. Table 9-37 gives an overview of the various means that are presently in use. Eckhoff  has shown how research on relevant fundamental phenomena can promote further development of practical means for preventing and mitigating dust explosions in industry.
