Fly & Bottom Ash Handling | KC Cottrell

GCM

In coal-fired power plant, where coats would be pulverized by the coal mill and fed into boiler with hot airs in a high speed. This pulverized coal will be immediately combusted in the boiler at the high temperature range of 1,500±200℃ beyond the melting point of most mineral in the coal.This combustion remains unburned ash at last, which explains approximately 26-50 wt% of hard coal and ...Read more

Coal Ash: Hazardous to Human Health

GCM

What is coal ash? Coal ash is the waste that is left after coal is combusted (burned). It includes fly ash (fine powdery particles that are carried up the smoke stack and captured by pollution control devices) as well as coarser materials that fall to the bottom of the furnace. Most coal ash comes from coal-fired electric power plants.Read more
