Replace Substrate?

I don't remember what exact substrate I have but I know it's ADA. It's about 3 years old as I took it out of a larger tank it was in. Do you think this needs to be replaced? When I move it there is alot of "dust" that comes up.

Aquasoil perhaps?

You can try to sift the substrate to remove the smaller pieces, while keeping the larger Aquasoil pieces.
