Spontaneous Combustion Inhibitors

19078703_xl

Self-oxidation of coal and other carbonaceous materials susceptible to spontaneous combustion can result in a fire at any time during mining, transporting, or processing, causing safety, environmental, and economic concerns. Like all oxidation reactions, heat begins to accumulate, the temperature continues to rise and, if left unaltered, will cause thermal runaway, resulting in a spontaneous fire. This process most commonly occurs when material is being store in piles or silos. Physical methods of compaction and pile management can reduce the risk of spontaneous combustion, but will not effectively eliminate it. At our research facility in Atlanta, GA, MinTech has spent many years studying this process and how to best retard spontaneous combustion. With special adiabatic systems, thermogravimetric analyses, and differential scanning calorimeters, MinTech can determine the susceptibility of a substrate to spontaneous combustion. We then evaluate various chemical solutions and their ability to slow the oxidative process to provide our customers with optimal, custom solutions for their specific needs. Through the use of anti-oxidants, foam dust suppressants, binders, humectants, and pile sealants, MinTech has the ability to combat spontaneous combustion through each stage of the material handling process.

CoalTrol F430

High-expansion foam provides maximum coverage with minimal moisture addition, signicantly reducing water consumption. Fortfied with Flame Freeze Anti-Oxidant Spontaneous Combustion Inhibitor. Produces a dust-encapsulating foam that is ideal for a variety of applications including foam cleaning, coal transfer houses, coal crushing, coal storage, and other areas where coal dust is created. The low-moisture foam properties reduce BTU loss and reduce the risk of shorting out electrical components during on-line facility cleaning applications. Unique cationic surfactant chemistry attracts negatively charged coal dust particles, improving cleaning and dust reduction compared to conventional nonionic and anionic chemistries.

• Non-corrosive, neutral pH, and environmentally-friendly.
• Super wetting chemistry binds dust nes together, reducing fugitive dust emissions.
• Dilutes up to 1:400 with hard and soft water and can be used in most air-driven foam machines.
• Long-lasting foam reduces the number of application points required to control process dust problems.
• Perfect for removing dusts from walls and equipment as well as from oors, ducts, pipes, hoods, ledges, beams, and other horizontal surfaces.
• Anti-static properties dissipate electrostatic energy on treated surfaces and anti-oxidant properties scavenge free radicals to help prevent the conditions that lead to explosions in coal dust areas.

coaltrolf65 (catalog)

CoalTrol F65

A residual surfactant-based product used to control dust in unloading, transfer, and storage of coal, y ash, and other friable minerals. Contains Momar’s exclusive Flame Freeze anti-oxidant spontaneous combustion elimination technology.

• Exhibits binding properties that provide extended dust suppression both downstream of the application point and during storage.
• Typically provides 60 days residual dust suppression and 60 days residual spontaneous combustion reduction.
• Forms a tacky, hydroscopic film upon curing.
• Reduces the number of application points required to control your dust problems (reduces the number of chemical application points when transferring coal to silos or bunker areas).
• Freeze thaw stable and heat stable up to 120° F.
• The added binding agent allows for extended dust control in plant, rail, and barge application areas.
• Reduces moisture exchange and scavenges free radicals to inhibit exothermic reactions that lead to hot spots and fires in coal storage.
