Strengthening Plant Safety in Coal and Biomass Handling, Storage, Milling and Transportation

Presented by Derek Stuart, Global Product Manager - Power - AMETEK Land

In this webinar, AMETEK Land introduces early detection techniques of spontaneous combustion in coal and biomass handling, storage, milling and transportation. Attendees will learn about issues involved and how AMETEK Land can help producers and users to operate their sites more safely and effectively.

Risks of unwanted combustion – potentially causing injury, damage and downtime – occur everywhere that coal and biomass are handled, processed or stored. Safe handling practices are designed to ensure that the fuel remains intact throughout its journey. As coal and biomass fuels are susceptible to spontaneous combustion, and this can occur at any stage of storageproduction or transport, continuous and reliable monitoring is required. Early detection of combustion or hot spots is an important safety control.
