Coal

Coal
Coal remains one of the most widely-used sources of energy for power generation. Accurate monitoring is essential to demonstrate compliance with environmental regulations and to ensure safe, efficient operation.

Worldwide environmental regulations require measurements of opacity, particulate matter and pollutant gases. In addition, measurements of temperature and carbon monoxide are important for safe, efficient plant operation.

AMETEK Land provides accurate, reliable solutions across all stages of the coal combustion process. Using non-contact technologies, we provide a full range of instruments to monitor emissions and optimise combustion for improved fuel economy. Our safety solutions, including a dedicated device for coal mills, significantly reduce the fire risks to personnel and equipment.

  APPLICATION NOTE
Application Note - Coal Handling SafetySTRENGTHENING PLANT SAFETY IN COAL GRINDING MILLS AND STORAGE SILOS WITH CARBON MONOXIDE MONITORING
Risks of unwanted combustion – potentially causing injury, damage and downtime – occur everywhere that coal is handled, processed or stored. Safe coal handling practices are designed to ensure that the fuel remains intact throughout its journey from the mine until the point at which it is ignited in the boiler. Read More > Watch the Video >
