Refining Pet Coke

Pet coke is a combustible material, and storing it always creates the possibility of combustion occurring within the storage pile. Since two of the requirements for combustion – fuel and oxygen – are already present, all that is required is the presence of heat, so any hotspots need to be detected early.

If combustion occurs undetected within the storage pile, it will consume the pet coke, reducing it to a worthless ash. Should the fire become out of control, the safety of the storage building and site personnel will be at risk. Continuous thermal monitoring can significantly reduce this risk.

The ARC detects the subtle rises in surface temperature that can signal combustion several metres deeper in the pile. Its software and connectivity allow the control of automated fire suppression systems to cool the coke as necessary. ARC also meets hazardous area classifications related to dust.
