Grain Dust Oil


Grain dust presents many problems for operators of grain elevators, and grain dust oil is used to keep it under control.

Grain Dust Can Be a Huge Problem

Without a comprehensive dust suppression plan, which includes grain dust oil like our MaxPar® GDO, grain elevators are at high risk of grain dust explosions, poor work conditions for workers, and profit shortfalls due to shrinkage.

Dust explosions occur when a sufficient amount of suspended, combustible dust particulate ignites. This type of explosion is called a fuel-air explosion, and it's the most dangerous situation a grain elevator operation has to contend with.


Explosions aren't the only risk caused by grain dust in a grain elevator. Dust suppression systems also make for a better work environment. Spraying grain with grain dust oil makes sure that dust stays out of the air and, in turn, out of workers' lungs.

Finally, operators rely on grain dust oil to assure maximum profitability in their grain elevator operations by limiting shrinkage. Grain dust sprayed with grain dust oil stays attached to the rest of the grain and contributes to higher throughput and overall yield.
