Fire Safety for Conveyor Systems - Patol

Fire Safety for Conveyor Systems To protect the upper side of the conveyor itself a detector “run” should be installed above the centre of the belt at a height of 1 to 1.5m. Normally this is achieved by the use of a steel catenary support wire to which the LHDC is affixed. To protect the underside of the conveyor, LHDC

Conveyor System Fire Protection - Hansentek

The general rule in fire protection systems for conveyors is to locate Ember Detector(s) upstream from a change in direction (transfer to another conveyor) or a dust producing process or storage point. Hence, once the ember is detected, it can be extinguished before it enters the next process where it can cause a potential explosion.

Fire-protection guidelines for: Conveyors transporting coal

Static Conveyor Fire In the conveyor structure any coal which falls from the moving belt, or an accumulation of settled coal dust, is a potential hazard. A mechanical fault in the bearing of a roller, or the friction between a seized roller and the belt, will result in a build up of heat which can be sufficient to

Conveyor belt temperature monitoring and fire

A conveyor belt fire is not only very dangerous and fast spreading but also very costly. Conveyors are easily ignitable and a fire can develop from many places: the material being conveyed, the electromechanical components and bearings of the system, or the belt itself. Therefore, continuous conveyor belt temperature monitoring is very important.
