Storage systems for coal the requirement for implementation of modern design techniques

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Design concepts for coal storage systems have altered significantly in recent times. Storages have become larger and the requirement for reliable performance has become paramount. This paper highlights the developments concerning the geometry of discharge systems for coal storages and emphasises the requirement to have complete contents of bins and the maximum possible inventory of stockpiles, reclaimable by gravity need to establish by measurement the flow properties of coal and their likely variability in storage need to integrate the feeder design with the hopper outlet geometry to ensure that both elements of the system work in harmony necessity for attention to detail in the design of storage and feeding systems.
