Solid fuels, such as, coal are often stored in open air stockpiles where moisture can gather in the bottom of the pile and lead to overheating and spontaneous combustion. These fires usually begin in the lower parts of the stockpile, meaning they can go unnoticed for a lengthy period of time. This can lead to significant loss in profit from your solid fuel. Our experts monitor and help protect your stockpile against this threat with infrared temperature control.
Infrared detects temperature changes that are undetectable to any human senses. Ssp, a Smithers company, experts have developed an infrared operating method allowing us to detect high temperatures in stockpiles before combustion occurs. Our experts flag high risk areas within your stockpile that need dug out to allow for cooling. We also provide picture reports that exhibit a pile's change in temperature over time.
