Dust Explosion (Chemistry)
A dust explosion occurs when air is saturated with particles and is ignited. When there is a high surface area to mass ratio and a source of ignition, even non combustible materials can explode. Granaries and flour mills were known to explode and precautions against such conditions are still taken in warehouses and plants that deal with that danger.
