No particle size distribution necessary due to different uses and manufacturing processes
Glycerides with a melting point below 50 °C are marketed in a
semisolid or sticky form and are often melted for further processing and
therefore there is no risk for respirable dust or dust explosion in the
handling. Glycerides with a melting point above 55 °C are typically
marketed as flakes, pastilles or powders. The transformation from liquid
to solid is achieved by spray cooling. Therefore the particle size
distribution is more a point of the spray cooling conditions and methods
than a substance typical property. For standard and coarse powders the
mean particle size is > 150 µm the proportion of respirable dust
(particles < 10 µm) is negligible (0 – 1.1%). For fine powders the
proportion of respirable dust is below 5.5% and is not considered to be
significant. The explosion risk posed by glycerides is low.
