RE: Self ignition point in petcoke


Mitchell Moloney

Causes of coke conveyor fires are usually a bad conveyor belt wheel bearing, causing localized overheating or sparks, which ignites the coke and/or its VCM material.  Oily coke can also lead to conveyor belt fires.  Autoignition of the coke is an unlikely cause.
