Storage Silo | Biomass / Coal Power Generation | AMETEK Land

Storage Silo. Before final milling, coal is typically stored in silos. Similarly, wet and dry biomass are stored in silos. This presents a risk of fire, as solid coal, coal dust and biomass are susceptible to spontaneous heating and combustion. It is vital to monitor the stored coal and biomass to detect hot spots and early signs of combustion.
