What is the reason for sulphur pit overpressure? A few days ago the sulphur plant’s sulphur pit temperature suddenly reached 190°C+. Its normal temperature is around 140°C. 1)iIs this because of a small fire in the sulpgur pit, or any other reason? 2) Sweep air with moisture or sweep air without moisture - any effect on sulphur pit pressure?

A sudden significant temperature increase indicated in the sulphur pit usually indicates a fire.
