FIREBLOCK COAL COOL

Overtime coal oxidises, and will spontaneously combust. Additional environmental factors such as sun and wind will accelerate the period taken for the coal to combust. Once a stock pile starts burning, it is very hard to contain and extinguish, as the fire generates its own heat. With coal, these fires can quickly get out of control and the chances of the stock piles reigniting, are high.

Coal fires are a hazard to the environment, they release harmful greenhouse gases and fine particles into the atmosphere, which are dangerous for the health and safety of communities in the area. The water used to attempt to cool the stock piles flows into nearby water sources, polluting them. FIREBLOCK COAL COOL is a nontoxic, environmentally friendly product that is used in the prevention of stockpile fires.

In order to prevent or stop a stock pile from burning the heat or oxygen has to be removed Removing the heat from a stock pile is difficult due to the size of the stock piles of coal. The amount of coal packed into a tight area causes the temperature to rise, and this heat is not able to escape. Coal mines are known to move the stock piles regularly to disperse of this heat and cool it down, but at large costs to the coal mine with machinery, diesel and manpower and the burnt coal that cannot be sold is a huge loss to the coal industry.

FIREBLOCK COAL COOL – IS USED VERY SUCCESSFULLY IN THE COAL INDUSTRY.

FIREBLOCK COAL COOL APPLICATION

FIREBLOCK COAL COOL – is used very successfully in the coal industry. Our method is that the burning or smouldering coal is spread out and sprayed with FIREBLOCK COAL COOL. The product then seeps between the coal coating it and removing the heat from the coal.

Stockpiles that have yet to spontaneously combust can be sprayed in the same manner, preventing them from igniting and providing a protective layer around the coal delaying any combustion that may occur over time. Due to the exothermic reaction of coal, coal fires cannot be avoided, and the stockpiles are a maintenance fire, resulting in the stockpile requiring constant monitoring by means of thermal cameras and respraying once it reaches a certain temperature.
