Drum dryers present the risk of fires and explosions due to combustible dust, as well as conditions that can lead to the generation and accumulation of combustible gas. Join us for this online symposium as we explore best practices for safer operations of drum dryers. The Wood Pellet Association of Canada is hosting the online event on Thursday, April 4, 2024, from 9:00-11:00 am Pacific Time (1:00-3:00 am Atlantic Time). Both drum dryers and belt dryers are widely used in the wood pellet industry as well in other sectors, including oriented strand board, medium density fibreboard, grain, and minerals. The symposium will include presentations from producers and subject matter experts on learnings and experiences, the current state of and new approaches to drum dryer safety. …We encourage personnel at wood pellet facilities that operate drum dryers to attend the event.
