The guideline VDI 2263 Part 9 describes a procedure for the determination of the dustiness of combustible dusts by practical simulation of dust formation processes (conveying, discharging, filling, loading/unloading, etc.). The procedure described yields a characteristic for the dustiness of dusts, which can be used in particular for the assessment of dust explosion hazards. This guideline neither describes a reference test procedure in accordance with DIN EN 15051 nor a routine procedure in accordance with DIN 33897-1 for the characterization of the dustiness and the ensuing health hazards at the workplace.
