Power Station: Pulverizing Coal
- Electric power station mainly uses pulverized coal-fired boilers to providing steam to drive large turbines.
- The pulverized coal-fired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal (also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup) that is blown into the firebox.
- The basic idea of a firing system using pulverised fuel is to use the whole volume of the furnace for the combustion of solid fuels. Coal is ground to the size of a fine grain, mixed with air and burned in the flue gas flow. Biomass and other materials can also be added to the mixture. Coal contains mineral matter which is converted to ash during combustion. The ash is removed as bottom ash and fly ash. The bottom ash is removed at the furnace bottom.
- Pulverized coal provides the thermal energy which produces about 50% of the world’s electric supply.
- Our grinding balls are always used to grinding coal in ball mill at power station.
