Both Dust Hazard Analyses (DHAs) and explosion protection have prescriptive methodologies available. These approaches can result in overly conservative and expensive solutions for an adequate level of safety. By applying advanced quantitative modeling to both DHAs and explosion protection design, owners can potentially realize capital and operational cost savings while maintaining an acceptable level of safety. A case study will be reviewed.
