Dry Solids Handling System

Atlanta RM Clayton

Sewage dust is typically considered ST1 explosive class dust with a “Kst Constant” range of 0-200 bar-m/sec. Proper handling of dry solids is crucial for public health and safety.

JMS dried biosolids storage systems act as the first line of defense against fire/explosions. Our rigorous product standards ensure excellent handling of dried sewage sludge, accounting for combustion and self-heating properties and meeting NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) requirements for transport and storage.
