||Fire hazards in grain drying plants
||Brandgefńhrlichkeit von K÷rnertrocknungsanlagen [in German]|
||Aug. 1992, Vol.21, No.3, p.42-45. Illus.
||Between 1982 and 1987 there were 18 fires in 14 grain drying plants in the state of Schleswig-Holstein and the city of Hamburg, Germany. Exothermic reactions triggered by the steady flow of warm air through grain agglomerations turned out to be the cause of the fires. Modifications of the design and operation of dryers for preventing fires are described.
