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
