APS for Coal Fired Power Plants 

The APS is the solution for having Real-time, automatic, continuous, rapid and accurate laboratory quality measurements with no delay resulting in an increased profitability and reduced CO2 Emission.​

  • One of the biggest challenges faced by a Coal Fired Power Plant operator is waiting for a lab report of the materials to be burned. Traditionally, the time span between sampling and processing of the material is a maximum of 2 weeks.

  • In this 2-week time span, the properties of the material to which all operational settings are tuned can change and become obsolete.

  • These changing properties result in not achieving the maximum potential efficiency and/or an excessive frequency of expensive shutdowns, which puts pressure on the profit margin and has a negative effect on emissions.

  • On-Belt Analysis of the Coal.


Profitability in Availability: Continuous Operation

APS help in preventing slagging​

  • By controlling the furnace exit temp below the ash fusion temperature, ash is kept in solid state and thus prevents blockages​

APS avoid tubes leaks​

  • Slagging control limits tube erosion from high velocity flue gas flow​

  • Prevents heat flux caused by difference in tube surface temp​

Avoid unnecessary shutdown and unplanned costly events​

  • Maximize availability of plant​

  • Shutdowns can be schedule rather than unplanned due to fouling or breakdown

Profitability in Data: ​ Real-Time Analysis

Real-time automatic, continuous, rapid and accurate laboratory quality measurements with no delay​

  • Moisture​

  • Coal quality​

  • Slagging index ​

  • Fouling index​

  • Gross calorific value (GCV) during bunkering​

  • Ash composition ​


​​Fully automated and continuous to maintain high productivity​

  • ​Inputs streamed directly to the plant control systems​

  • Coal feed/bunkering management​

  • Milling​

  • Combustion adjustment

Profitability in Control: Fly Ash 

With the control of your combustion, you can control your fly ash quality​

  • APS can be used to directly analyze the Fly Ash quality ​

  • Opportunity for Hight quality Fly Ash trade to cement industry
