Abstract
The aim of this study is to propose an experimental methodology to detect incipient self-ignition processes in solid fuels. This methodology is based on the gases emissions of different solid fuels, varying different factors: sample volume, degree of compaction and grain size of the materials. To achieve this goal, a procedure for the collection and analysis of the gases emitted by samples of various fuels has been developed, analysing the temperatures at which these emissions begin. The results obtained for different materials, such as coal and wood chips show that it is possible to detect incipient spontaneous combustion processes using measurements of different exhaust gases, such as CO, CO2 and SO2, being possible to set alarm thresholds based on the concentrations of these gases. Those results have been compared with results from conventional thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry tests and it is shown that the proposed methodology detect the self-ignition process start point in advance.
