Abstract
Fifty-five conveyor belt fire tests were conducted in the Bureau of Mines fire test gallery, located at the factory mutual fire test center, West Glocester, Rhode Island. The objectives were to (1) determine the fire resistance and burning characteristics of various conveyor belt materials under simulated mine conditions, (2) provide essential data for designing a reliable bench-scale conveyor belt fire-resistance test, and (3) determine fire test conditions that will discriminate between low, moderate, and high fire-resistant materials. Belts, representative of those that could be found in underground coal mines were examined under a number of experimental conditions that included ignition intensity, airflow rate, ratio of belt height to overall gallery height, exposure time, and belt width.
