Metallurgical Coal SDS - Teck

Fire and Explosion Hazards: Solid coal is not readily combustible but can be ignited through sustained contact with an open flame. Finely-divided coal dust is a moderate fire and explosion hazard, particularly when dispersed in the air at high concentrations in an enclosed space and exposed to flame or other ignition sources.

Coal dust - Wikipedia

Coal dust suspended in air is explosive—coal dust has far more surface area per unit weight than lumps of coal, and is more susceptible to spontaneous combustion.As a result, a nearly empty coal store is a greater explosion risk than a full one.

Coal Dust: How to Prevent a Power Plant Explosion - F.E. Moran

Jul 27, 2018 · Coal dust only needs to accumulate to a footprint size and already it is a fire hazard. As the conveyor moves, any friction that occurs can be enough of a heat source to cause an explosion. Any machine that is not running impeccably can cause friction and, as a result, a heat source.

Coal-Fired Power Plants: Additional Hazards Require ...

Jul 06, 2017 · Coal Dust Hazards. For a fire to occur, the fire triangle needs to be present - oxygen, fuel, and heat. An explosion happens when two other elements are added to the equation - dispersion of dust and confinement of dust, as shown in diagram A. Oxygen and fuel cannot be avoided in a PRB coal-fired power plant, but the heat source can originate from several different sources.

Explosive Hazard | Graphic Products

Combustible Dust – The Severity Of The Explosive Hazard. The severity of a combustible dust explosion, as well as the ease of ignition are dependent on the dust particle size. Dust particles smaller than 420 microns (particles that can pass through a U.S. No. 40 standard sieve) are most likely to be an explosive hazard.
