With over 600 installations on PRB coal, Air-Cure addresses each of the following areas of concern when dealing with PRB coal applications.

For a quick reference of the following sections read the Abstract.

Greater Potential for Spontaneous Combustion
The relative difference in the propensity for spontaneous combustion between Eastern or Midwestern bituminous and PRB coal is the greatest threat to system safety. A combination of high moisture and more volatiles results in ...

PRB coal has generally between 20% and 30% water content compared to 10% for a midwestern bituminous coal. This moisture is continually liberated ...

Larger Quantity of Fine Particulate
This is the characteristic most identifiable with PRB coal; the quantity of fine dust. Obviously the whole purpose of the system is to collect and filter this dust ...
