underground conveyor belt fire safety:

Underground safety of conveyor belts

2021-1-27 · Conveyor belts represent a high risk, because they have the ability to spread a fire over long distances. Fires on belt conveyors are mostly ignited by mechanical failures like frozen idlers, which is even more dangerous in combination with coal dust. The fire safety requirements are similar for the most hard coal mining countries.

2021-6-6 · To determine whether a conveyor belt will propagate fire, a belt sample 2.0 to 2.5 meters long by 1200 millimeters wide (80 to 100 in. by 48 in.) is ignited by a propane burner. After the ignition source has been removed, the flames must self-extinguish within a certain amount of time, leaving a defined area of belt undamaged.
