2015-7-29COAL DUST EXPLOSION HAZARDS by CLETE R. STEPHAN, P.E. MINE SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMININSTRATION PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA ABSTRACT There are a large number of facilities throughout the world which handle coal, such as preparation plants. Many other facilities ... The ignition temperature of a coal dust cloud decreases as the volatile content ...
2018-2-1than normal, either when initating coal feed on mill start-up, stopping coal feed on shutdown, or when equip- ment problems cause inadvertent loss of feed. Upon loss of feed to a pulverizer, the coal air mixture in the system becomes leaner and the coal dust will be ground to a more uniformly fine size and dried to a greater extent.
2020-4-9the coal dust problem are being pursued continually. Coal dust explosions are still occurring, however, and many unsolved problems on this subject still remain This is due, in part, to thelr complexity and to the many parameters that affect the ignition sensitivity and the explosibility of coal dust.

The grinding function reduces coal fed into the mill into a dust with particles of the size required for combustion. There are two main types of mill in common use the spindle type and the drum type. ... so that the ...

2020-1-6Conditions for an Explosion A dust cloud of any flammable material will explode where 1 the concentration of dust in air falls within the explosive limits, and 2 a source of ignition of the required energy for that dust cloud is present. Conversely, an explosion can be prevented if one, or preferably both, of these conditions are avoided.
mill may produce sufficient heat and sparks to initiate a fire or an explosion. Broken damper plates or fan blades from fans or ducting may also create frictional sparks which can ignite coal dust clouds or accumulations. The high temperature of the drying air often can provide enough heat to

2020-1-6Zone 20 Continuous release inside a dust containment enclosure gives rise to Zone 20 - a place in which an explosive atmosphere, in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air, is present continuously, or for long periods or frequently for short periods. For example, a mill or pneumatic conveying system. Zone 21
1994-1-11Safe mill operation requires, in addition to maintaining the appropriate coalair ratio, that the temperature of the fuel stream exiting the roller mill be maintained within safe limits. This requisite temperature control is accomplished by mixing cold air with the hot or primary air delivered to the mill.

Other explosion characteristics measured for the metal and other elemental dusts included minimum explosible concentrations lean flammable limits, maximum explosion pressures, and rates of pressure rise.
2014-5-5spot will increase in temperature. When a fire is detected in a location or piece of equipment, all coal moving activities In and out of the affected location or equipment must be stopped. Dust collectors, belts, and other equipment that service the affected location or equipment or may create dust in the area must be shut down.
