Looking for information regarding combustible dusts that are produced from 3D printing. These can include RAD materials, as well as combustible metals that are used.
In lieu of being able to find any of this information published and assuming you aren't already processing using these materials, my suggestions are these:
1) Contact the manufacturer of the printing materials to see if they have had testing performed and can provide you with the proper combustibility and explosibility data.
2) If you don't already own the 3D printing equipment, contact the printing equipment manufacturer and see if they have similar data on like materials.
***If you are already processing with these materials, contact a testing facility that will give you sampling instructions and will perform the proper combustibility and explosibility testing on the dust.***
One option is to take a sample and have Pmax, dP/dt and Kst determined according to ASTM E1226 Standard Test Method for Explosibility of Dust Clouds . We recently had such work done by Fauske & Associates (630) 323-8750 firstname.lastname@example.org
