Flame Temperature in OilFired FuelBurning Equipment and its Relationship to Carbonaceous Particulate Emissions Field tests were conducted on 82 fuelburning installations ranging from 50 to 500 hp, fired with residual fuel oils. A flame pyrometer was used to measure peak flame temperatures. Coarse particulates were
· Fires will be more frequent if the silo/bunker is not cleaned periodically and/or proper filling procedures are not followed. In the event of a fire, it is usually not practical to run the coal from the silo out onto the ground; therefore, fire control in the silo/bunker is necessary.
