Participation of large particles in coal dust explosions

2014-1-1  The medium-size coal, which contains about 40% < 75 μm, is inerted with 50% regular rock dust. The coarse coal, which only contains about 20% < 75 μm, is inerted with 40% rock dust. This latter value is quite close to the 34% reported by other researchers using the Fike 1-m 3 chamber (Dastidar et al. 2001). The difference can be attributed to
