Keep up with your boiler’s demanding appetite for coal!
When you’re supplying power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses, the demand for your product never takes a break. Neither does your boiler’s demand for coal. So your conveyor equipment better be able to keep feeding it without fail. And because a coal-fired power plant can consume thousands of tonnes of coal every day – as well as the limestone used to control emissions – your conveyor systems have to be able to take a constant beating.
With coal, if you don’t have a system in place to contain the material during transport, it gets everywhere. Clouds of coal dust get suspended in the air. Some coal spills off the conveyor belt, especially at the transfer points, and it sticks easily to the walls of chutes, pipes, bins and silos, causing material flow issues. These problems can lead to serious safety and health risks for workers and can damage your equipment over time. Plus, when coal dust becomes suspended in the air, it can eventually accumulate on the floor and on your equipment. Or it can be inhaled by workers and cause health problems or even ignite and cause a deadly explosion.
At Martin Engineering, we have over 70 years of experience working with coal, from the mine to the boiler and practically everything in between. All around the world, you can find coal-fired power plants that have installed our products to make their conveyor belts run better by keeping the belts clean, preventing misalignment and keeping fugitive dust under control.
The bottom line is this: the conveyor systems that move coal from the railcar or barge through the crushers and silos all the way to the boiler are complex pieces of equipment, with lots of moving parts that have to work together with precision. When the belt is even a little out of alignment, especially at the transfer points, fugitive material spills and coal dust starts filling the area. Martin products are engineered to keep your conveyor systems cleaner, safer and more productive.
