WET MATERIAL FLOW AIDS

We coal flow aids to reduce bridging and rat-holing and improve coal tranfer and storage

Wet coal and other materials can create complications when being transported or processed. Although they may appear to be minor nuisances, the problems, can slow down production and lead to revenue loss. The ability to process coal to produce electricity is dependent upon proper flow of material, which can be restricted by wet coal. MinTech offers solutions to avoid stoppages during storage and handling.

FlowTrol 195

A concentated wet coal flow promoter.  When the moisture content of coal is 12 – 18% the coal becomes very sticky and can clog chutes and hopper.  Flowtrol 195 reduces or eliminates chute and downcomer pluggage, rat-holing, sidewall deposits, and bridging or arching in these areas of high compaction pressure or narrow chute diameters.

  • Treated coal is free-flowing
  • Disrupts capillary bridging (hydrogen bonding)
  • Gives more active storage volume while minimizing labor cost
  • Contains no sulfur and will not affect BTU values or ash production rates
  • Coal mines facilitate loading operations and can minimize customer complaints of wet coal handling problems
  • Steel mills can assure more uniform material throughputs and more consistent product bulk densities
  • Coal-firing power plants avoid derations and the need to purchase costly make-up power
