Coal Mill

Powdered coal is typically used to provide the controlled heat within the burning zone of the rotary kiln. As part of essential fire prevention measures, carbon monoxide (CO) levels must be monitored at the coal mill where pulverisation takes place.

When coal is in contact with air it oxidises to form CO and carbon dioxide. This is exothermic and can lead to hot spots which, if undetected, can cause a fire. Detection of CO build-up provides the earliest warning of combustion, and prevents the risk of explosion in a confined space.

Delivering a fast, accurate response to increases in CO levels, Millwatch helps improve process safety, protecting the mill equipment from damage and preventing costly downtime from unnecessary shutdowns.
