Coal grinding systems have wrongs in fire and explosion protection due to purchasing process: See here why.


Comparison: CO₂ inerting – CO₂ fire extinguishing

CO₂ is an odorless, colourless, inert gas that suffocates fires primarily by diluting the oxygene concentration that supports combustion processes. It is effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials in both surface and deepseated fires. The cooling effect of the CO₂ is rather low in comparison to the extinguishing respectively suffocation effect.

How to get your coal grinding system correctly protected? You will be surprised about what has gone wrong with fire and explosion protection of your system(s). Be sure about that! Evaluation of a coal grinding system’s fire and explosion protection, including the raw coal storage and the fine coal silo storage normally can be done in one day, mostly without having to stop coal grinding.

The evaluation will be done by way of touring the plant, making photos and having interviews with the people responsible for the operation. This will result in a comprehensive illustrated report and complete recommendations with explanations for necessary corrections. Ask for a free-of-charge offer indicating your airport.
