strange they went to all the trouble to do it with animation and not just shoot video from real shops and mills
also i wonder if it really does need an electric spark
thought that if conditions were adequate combustion could occur spontaneously
grain silos can do that

With enough black powder you could probably get a good secondary explosion of dust.

Still requires an ignition source -- but what are you doing with black powder in your wood shop anyway?

You find it strange that someone sat in a cubicle and put the piles of sawdust exactly where they wanted them, then set a pile of sawdust on fire with a spark from a motor and then allowed a series of ever expanding explosions to eventually destroy an entire plant in a massive conflagration?
You would rather have seen the real thing?
Are you volunteering your shop for such a video?

Wyle E. Coyote made bigger bangs with less. More realistic, anyway.
