Pulverizer Fire and Explosions

Explosions in a pulverized coal system are normally called “puffs.” A mill puff is an explosion in the mill system caused by an explosive combination of coal, air and temperature. Mill puffs most often originate in the under bowl area and can cause very destructive damage to the primary air ducting.

Pulverized Coal Explosions in the U.S. Utility Industry

Ignition events remaining within the coal pipe created only weak pressure rise, while ignition events within a simulated pulverizer volume created explosions exceeding 70 bar gage (1015 psig). These experiments showed that explosion characteristics depend on dust concentration, ratio of pulverizer volume to coal pipe area, as well as coal type.
