For this practice to be effective, the enclosure must be completely sealed—especially the bot-tom cone, because CO 2 is about 1.5 times heavier than air. The amount of CO 2 need-ed to effectively render an enclosure inert is

Thus, the flame front is held stable at a distance away from the end of the nozzle where the coal/ air mixture velocity has slowed and is equal to the flame speed.

Spontaneous Coal Combustion Part 2: Chemical Inhibitors

When this happens, coal is left in bunkers inside the plant, which can be problematic since most coal is susceptible to spontaneous combustion. It is typically very difficult to have the coal removed from these bunkers, meaning a fire hazard will be sitting in the facility for an unknown amount of time. Therefore, the best practice is to seal these bunkers with bunker sealants. The idea is
