    Grain elevator explosions are specifically called out in this report showing 51 explosions over this ten-year period from through More recent statistics are available from OSHA and show that over a more recent ten-year period, through , there have been 83 explosions . This is in response to your letter regarding grain elevator explosions. We appreciate receiving comments and recommendations on this subject. Please accept my apology for the delay in response. I, too, am deeply concerned about the recent grain elevator explosions and fires which have caused high loss of life and property.

The panel feels that, in order to obtain a thorough knowledge of the causes and prevention of grain elevator explosions, it is critical that investigations be conducted as much as possible in a non-adversary environment.

The use of adversary procedures is likely. Prevention of dust explosions can be achieved by avoiding explosive concentrations of dust and ignition temperatures. As it is practically impossible to avoid these two principal factors completely in grain elevators and flour mills, there will be always a risk of an explosion.

Dust will always develop and ignition sources are always by: Prevention of dust explosions in grain elevators--an achievable goal: a task force report.

Grain handling creates an environment that can result in combustion and explosion of dust. The three elements needed for a fire — grain dust as a fuel source, oxygen, and an ignition source — can create a flash fire that is dispersed within a confined space, resulting in the deadly ingredients for an explosion.
