The invention relates to the field of research materials by determining their thermal properties and is designed to predict the endogenous risk of fire coal shahtoplastov exploration developments.

Chemical and physical changes of coal caused by oxidation, accompanied by evolution of heat, which accumulates due to their poor thermal conductivity. The result is a spontaneous combustion of coal mines, stockpiles, storage in dumps, which creates difficulties in providing security, complicates the environment and leads to a significant loss of raw materials, to injuries. Prone to spontaneous combustion of the coal at all stages of metamorphism, but most tend brown and black.

From the prior art known methods for evaluation of spontaneous combustion of coal, based on measurement of the concentration of indicator gas in the sample mine air (EN 2459959 C1, E21F 5/00, publ. 27.08.2112) [1], (EN 2271450 C2, E21F 5/00, publ. 10.03.2006) [2]. All known patented methods for evaluation of spontaneous combustion of coal is used directly in the mine workings on the fact of occurrence of endogenous fire and do not solve the task of predicting the propensity of coals to spontaneous combustion in exploration development shahtoplastov.

By order of the Ministry of energy of the Russian Federation from 29.04.1998 No. 151 [3]determine the chemical activity of the speed of sorption of carbon oxygen in the sorption vessel. Apparatus for assessing the activity of coal contains the sorption vessel made of glass with a thickness of 2-3 mm, with two cranes: overhead crane, which is a glass tube with soldered in her tube, which are polished to the throat of the vessel, the bottom of the vacuum valve, three-way. The vessel is fixed on a tripod. At the bottom of the vessel are poured layer of glass rods. The device must be sealed, cranes, well polished, greased with vacuum grease and tested, as a result of adsorption of oxygen by coal in the vessel creates a vacuum. Selected in the mine sample is delivered to a cut, crushed, sieved on a sieve with a selection of narrow fractions 1-3 mm (more than one, less than three mm) and immediately tested. Storage of samples is permitted only in hermetically sealed glass vessels.

Determined by the method of chemical reactivity of coals is important, but insufficient factor in the prediction of endogenous fire risk. The possibility of spontaneous combustion of coal is determined not only by chemical activity, but also the external conditions in which there is accumulation of debris.

A device for predicting the propensity of a lawsuit the activity of coals to spontaneous combustion (figure 1) contains a quartz reactor 1 in the form of tubes with a volume of 150 cm 3to accommodate samples of coal, automatic aspirator 2 stamps AR-4, water-alkaline bubbler 3 a volume of 0.5 liters, made of transparent glass, removable heater 4, covering the quartz reactor 1 at its input connected to the block temperature control 5. Quartz reactor 1 has an inlet port 6 and outlet fitting 7, which is installed filters 8 and 9, respectively, are made of glass wool. The ends of the quartz reactor 1 is equipped with sealed tubes 10, 11. Through two holes in the tube 10 missed electrodes chromel-alyuminievoi tertiary 12, the outputs of which are connected to the temperature logger 13. Quartz reactor 1 through an outlet nozzle 7 is connected with an aqueous-alkaline Barbarum 3 flexible hose 14, the end of which a spray of air 15, immersed in an aqueous solution of CA(Oh)2. Output water-alkaline bubbler 3 through the fitting 16 is connected by a flexible hose 17 with the flowmeter 18 automatic aspirator 2 performance 0,-1 l/min

In a quartz reactor 1 is installed tube 10 with thermocouple 12, load it with a sample of crushed coal weighing 150-200 g and close the airtight tube 11. The output nozzle 7 through a flexible hose 14 is connected with an aqueous-alkaline bubbler 3, the fitting 16 which through a flexible hose 17 is connected flowmeter 18 performance 0.2-1 l/min automatic Asper the Torah 2. At the entrance of the quartz reactor 1 is installed removable thermopatch 4. In block temperature control 5 specify one of three modes of heating the quartz reactor 1 for the studied brands of coals: 25-100°C for brown coal, 25-150°C for coal, 25-250°C for anthracite coal, which is caused by difference for initial temperatures of accidentally (ito).

Due to the vacuum generated by the automatic aspirator 2, the air through the inlet port 6 and the filter 8 with a speed of 0.5-1 l/min is supplied in a quartz reactor 1 is filled with crushed coal fraction 0,16-0,5 mm When heated quartz reactor 1 in the specified mode 25-100°C for brown coal sample, placed in it, is activated by loss of up to 80% moisture for 70 minutes Then thermopatch 4 off and kept quartz reactor 1 for 24 hours at room temperature to cool the sample.

Dried thus a sample of coal is subjected to repeated heating mode of the first cycle, which leads to increased binding of oxygen mainly due to the formation of radicals, carboxyl and hydroxyl groups and heating the sample due to the exothermic oxidation reactions contained combustible components. The oxidation of coal is accompanied by the release of CO2that is, entering into a chemical reaction with an aqueous solution of CA(Oh)2,about the will formed an insoluble precipitate of caso 3milky-white color. Visually the beginning of solution turbidity in aqueous-alkaline bubbler 3 determine the actual value of the initial temperature T0accidentally (utrs) of the sample when it is re-heated. Temperature logger 13 in automatic mode gives the graphs of dependences of temperature change of the sample at the outlet of the reactor T°C from time t blowdown coal air per minute, with 2-fold heating the reactor to a temperature not exceeding the initial temperature of accidentally coal (utrs), where curve 1 corresponds to the first cycle of heating and curve 2 - re-cycle heating conducted after cooling the reactor to room temperature, T1the point of intersection of curves 1 and 2, the angle α is their difference, δt is the temperature change in the first and second cycle of heating samples of coal.

Angle of divergence of the curves of drying and re-heating (figure 5) determine the velocity V of the exothermic reaction. The resulting difference of divergence of the curves separately for the non-oxidized (figure 4) and oxidized (figure 5) borehole compare with the results of simultaneous differential thermal (DTA), thermogravimetric (TG) and mass spectrometric (CCO2analysis of control duplicate samples on the instrument STA S.

For research were used reference samples oxidized and not oxidized coal grade B shahtoplastov lignite deposits of the Khabarovsk Krai, prone to spontaneous combustion. Samples were selected point or furrow method depending on the capacity and structure of the coal seam. To prevent coal from further oxidation during transportation to the place of laboratory tests, Rostov-on-don), lumpy material samples were gerotziafas and were placed in plastic bags with a special marking.

Preparation of samples for laboratory tests were fragmentation and dispersion of powdered coal fractions: a 3.0-0.5 mm, 0.5 to 0.16 mm and less than 16 mm, the Processed sample was distributed according to the standard plastic bottles 250-500 ml, in which they were stored until further testing. From coal fractions of 3.0-0.5 mm were cut-briquettes for the evaluation of microcracks and the degree of oxidation of the coal petrographic method according to GOST 8930-94. Under the microscope, when the increase is not more than 650 times were determined proportion of the total area of weathered areas of coal grains to the entire area cut-Brik is and. Counting was carried out point method (400 points), oxidation of the samples (CAp) was calculated in percentage by the formula

AboutKn=B×100B+H,%,

where is the number of points weathered squares cut-briquettes; N - number of points not weathered squares cut-briquette.

The depth of the weathering process of the studied plots was estimated by the appearance of grain disintegration rounded irregular voids and cavities leaching, and the presence in collinite wedge-shaped cracks weathering framed "dark border" oxidized coal width of 2-10 microns with lower values of vitrinite reflectance (R0). After petrographic sort of coal to non-oxidized and oxidized, material fraction 0.5-0.16 mm method Kvantovaya was divided into two parts - the main sample and the duplicate, which were placed in a desiccator with sulfuric acid and dried up natural moisture. The main microsamples were tested at pilot plant, simulating the processes of low-temperature oxidation and spontaneous combustion of coal in a laboratory environment. Duplicate samples were studied on the device STA S Jupiter, NETZSCH, Germany, 2007 by differential is but-thermal (DTA) and thermogravimetric (TG) analyses with continuous registration of release of carbon dioxide by heating the sample from ambient temperature to 500°C, to confirm the degree of oxidation. The device contains a measuring unit, power supply, thermostat, system controller TASK and the computer. Temperature range of the instrument is 25-1550°C. Sealed oven gives you the opportunity to collect without loss of indicator gases emitted from the substance when heated, and send them to the console of mass spectrometric analysis in the continuous mode of the experiment.

Each of the prepared duplicate microprobe three oxidized and three not oxidized coal weighing 30-50 mg in a special crucible was placed in a furnace device STA S and subjected to a smooth and continuous heat up to 500°C with automatic registration of the experimental curves - DTA, TG and CCO2. The results of DTA were used to study such chemical reactions as dehydration, dissociation and other physical transformations in coal under heating the samples in air. Usually this kind of chemical reactions and physical transformations are accompanied by thermal effects is exothermic in the case of heat and endothermic in the case of absorption. Many reactions, including accidentally organic matter of coal, also accompanied by changes in the weight of the substance that is fixed thermogravimetric TG curve. With mnost this method, which unlike DTA has a quantitative nature, is that the sample studied coal is heated in a furnace for continuous weighing. Obtained information about the weight loss of the original samples provide an opportunity to judge the amount of volatile components in the coal, as well as on the kinetics of the processes of decomposition, dehydration, dissociation, oxidation, and other phenomena. Thus, in many cases, the task of definition of temperature, for storing the communication stability of water molecules and hydroxyl ions.

As shown in figure 2 and 3, endothermic effects are responsible for the amount of evaporated moisture from microsamples of coal are present in the temperature range of 60-100°C and occur without allocation of CO2. With a selection of CO2corresponds to the initial temperature of accidentally coal (utrs) at T=145°C for not oxidized (figure 2) and at T=130°C for oxidized (figure 3) coals.

The maximum allocation of CO2in the temperature range 420-500°C, accompanied by an intense mass loss of the test substance TG were recorded temperature of spontaneous combustion of coal TCB, which was equal to 427,3°C for not oxidized coal (figure 2) and 465°C for oxidized coal (figure 3). Building prediction of spontaneous combustion shahtoplastov brown coals were carried out on samples of brown coal of the Khabarovsk Krai in the following way.

1. Angle RA is walking the curves of drying and re-heating (figure 4) determine the velocity V of the exothermic reaction is not oxidized coal:

V=δT/t=75°C/46 min=1.63°C/min

2. Angle of divergence of the curves of drying and re-heating (figure 5) determine the velocity V of the exothermic reaction of oxidized coal:

V=δT/t=70°C/36 min=1.9°C/min

3. Calculate the incubation period τnotOKspontaneous combustion is not oxidized coal by the formula

τnot OK=TCB-UTR/V=427.3°C-70°C/1.63°C/min=216,7 minutes

4. Calculate the incubation period τOKspontaneous combustion of oxidized coal by the formula

τOK=TCB-UTR/V=465°C-90°C/ 1.9°C/min=197,3 minutes

Thus obtained for each sample time values incubation period of spontaneous combustion of coals put on hypsometric plan of a mine field in areas of restraint coal seam exploration production. However, if the map plots with heterogeneous values of the incubation period of spontaneous combustion, it is concluded that the presence of focal areas of spontaneous combustion of coal and recommendations about the need for the mapping of prediction of spontaneous combustion of coal shahtoplastov.

SUBSTANCE: method includes drilling of wells between earth surface and roof of an underground mine, erection of an insulating barrier link by supply of a hardening material into an underground mine whenever an emergency occurs related to self-ignition of coal. The section of the underground mine in the place of erection of the isolating barrier link is worked with increased height, which is gradually increased from borders of this section to its middle. The well is drilled between earth surface and a point with maximum height of the underground mine, and supply of the hardening material into a mine is carried out to complete filling of the section with increased height with hardening material. On the borders of the section with increased height of the mine prior to start of hardening material supply into an underground mine, barriers are installed, width of which is accepted as equal to or less than the width of the mine in the place of barriers installation, and the height of the barriers is determined using a special expression.

SUBSTANCE: set of inventions relates to safe deep mining of solid hydrocarbons. Proposed method proceeds from continuous ground monitoring of geodynamic state of massif and seismic activity of bed roof and bed working on surface area covering bed headway in real time by passive prospecting seismology methods. Obtained results are automatically processed to isolate zones with abnormally-high seismic energy emission, define their area and depth coordinates so that map of anomalies of seismic emission. Maximum magnitudes of seismic emission are used to define coordinates of slope ratio of coal bed fracturing well. Development of main cracks is forecast from the well by the method of double refraction of transverse waves from surface excitation source. After fissuring, direction of main crack development in face bulk is controlled. Area is drilled from surface in directions of main crack development to pump methane out from the wells. With seismic emission decreasing, possibility to extract coal is forecast.

EFFECT: higher safety and intensity of coal extraction.
