Dalhousie’s Steele Ocean Sciences Building, Aquatron Laboratory and Life Science Centre
Join Dalhousie’s Office of Sustainability for a green building tour of the Steele Ocean Sciences Building, the Aquatron Laboratory, and recent upgrades to the Life Science Center (LSC).
This tour will highlight some of the green features of each space, including an overview of their LEED credentials and the work that goes on in each space.
Jensen Hughes Combustion Laboratory
Join Jensen Hughes at their state-of-the art Combustion Laboratory testing facility to learn about dust hazards, testing fundamentals, testing capabilities, and experience educational demonstrations.
The explosivity of combustible dusts depends on their physical and chemical properties such as moisture content, particle size, and morphology. This dust testing facility offers a range of testing including dusts and powders characterization, explosibility screening, minimum explosible concentration, explosion severity, limiting oxygen concentration, spontaneous ignition temperature conducted to ASTM, NFPA, DOT, VDI, BS EN, and DOT/UN standards. This facility includes the only cubic meter dust testing chamber in Canada, offering attendees a rare opportunity to learn about dust testing and combustible dust hazards.
