Operations

Module 17:

Grain Elevator Simulation Exercise


Objectives
Objectives

  • Identify the critical cues required to manage a grain elevator incident

  • Establish incident objectives

  • Determine strategies

  • Select tactics


Objectives continued
Objectives (continued)

  • Identify and request resources

  • Select alternate solutions

  • Establish an appropriate ICS organization to manage the incident


Overview
Overview

  • Grain elevator construction

  • Incident considerations for grain elevators and grain dryers

  • Fire extinguishment in grain elevators

  • The normal causes or sources of ignition for fire or explosion


Grain elevator construction
Grain Elevator Construction

  • Offices

  • Silos

  • Head house


Grain elevator preplan
Grain Elevator Preplan

  • Complexity

  • Egress

  • Machinery

  • Explosion potential


Dust explosions
Dust Explosions

  • Small initial explosion

  • Second explosion—larger, more powerful

  • Operations should never disturb large amounts of dust


Grain dryer incident considerations
Grain Dryer Incident Considerations

  • Dryers fueled by propane, fuel oil or natural gas

  • Safety features

  • Discharge chute clogging

  • “Hot” grain

  • Large fires difficult to control


Grain elevator fire extinguishment
Grain Elevator Fire Extinguishment

  • Apply water slowly and gently

  • CO2 sometimes injected from bottom

  • Interior offensive attack should be done with caution

  • Protective equipment required to enter grain bin, tank, or silo


Grain elevator sources of ignition
Grain Elevator Sources of Ignition

  • Bearing friction

  • Rubber conveyor belt

  • Belt/friction slippage

  • Faulty electrical wiring
