Pneumatic Conveying-Fly Ash Management Industry

Product Announcement from FLSmidth

The ash marketing community expects value for its investments. Since the movement of fly ash within areas of ash beneficiation and distribution adds no specific value to the product, the material handling systems should be low capital cost, energy efficient, rugged and reliable. FLSmidth's systems and components have been field proven in harsh industries such as coal-fired power, cement manufacture, and minerals processing - and have proven their dependability and uptime in many fly ash applications.Proven equipment for harsh environmentsLow capital costEnergy efficientRugged and dependableFly ash interceptUtilizes existing vacuum or pressure sourceCapture ash dry from existing plant ash handling systemsRe-routes ash convey path, while leaving existing path in place as back-upProcess conveyingAsh conveying rates can be regulated to suit process needsOver 300 meter (1,000 feet) convey distances, if requiredSystems driven by simple positive displacement blower packagesCompressor-driven systems can convey up to 1,500 meters (5,000 feet)Standard schedule 40 pipe used for convey lineLong-term dome storage and aerated reclaimAirslide™ gravity conveyor fluidizes ash, causing flow to dischargeNo moving parts in domeLow power consumptionConsistent reclaim feed controlDomes have over 27,000 metric ton (30,000 ton) capacitySilo reclaim and truck loadoutRegulated reclaim from silo, with loadout to truck or railcar through vented bulk spoutsSystems can be incorporated with truck / rail scalesSystems can include lump breakers and tramp-metal traps
