Safety Considerations in Handling Activated Carbon

Dust explosions. As previously mentioned, carbon is usually handled in its dry state until it is placed into the adsorption system. For tunately, so far in the pollution control indus try, no dust explosions have been reported. However, the potential is certainly present.
