Silo Fires highlights an operational tactic that is primarily based on the use of nitrogen gas for inerting the silo.


A silo fire entails many dangers, including the risk of gas and dust explosions, which can both lead to serious injury to personnel and a risk of the fire spreading into the associated conveyor systems which can rapidly lead to extensive damage. The use of nitrogen gas is the methodology that is considered to minimize the risks of personal injury and property damage.


Silo Fires are a result of an extensive knowledge collating project in this field, both through various research projects and through the transfer of knowledge from a number of real silo fires. This collective knowledge forms the foundation for the recommendations given in the book. Silo Fires is intended to be used both during emergency response operations in direct connection with a fire and also in prevention work.


The target group is the fire & rescue service, silo owners and fire safety consultants. Silo Fires is complemented by additional material, which is available on the MSB website.
