Detecting Coal Flow Problems in Power Plants
 

SITUATION:
A coal-fired power plant in India, Hidalco Industries, needed a sure-fire way to detect the flow or no-flow of coal from the feeders to the furnaces. A plugged chute or equipment failure would possibly go unnoticed until a more serious problem occurred. Knowing whether the coal was positively feeding into the furnaces was of paramount importance to the efficient operation of the power plant. How can a coal-fired power plant economically and reliably determine if coal feed is flowing when needed?

SOLUTION:
Most all coal-fired power plants have this problem and need. If coal flow is interrupted this quickly effects the efficient operation of the plant. The solution to Hidalco’s problem came with the Monitor Technologies’ Model SFD-2 solids flow detector. The SFD-2 is a non-invasive microwave device that uses Doppler-radar technology to quickly and reliably monitor the flow of coal from the feeder. The electronics for the SFD-2 are remotely mounted in a safe area and provide relay contact closures that are connected into the plants PLC or distributed control system.

Give Monitor Technologies a call and let us put our creative solutions to work for you!
