PROCESSING WET COAL EFFICIENTLY

Wet Coal is one of the most difficult challenges associated with thermal coal power generation.  Wet coal increases emissions, derates and plant shut downs resulting in lost generation (revenue) and increased stress on equipment and systems designed for continuous operation.  WET-LOK consists of a proprietary blend of cross-linked polymer crystals designed specifically to suspend moisture molecules from process coal in efforts to maximize production efficiency. 

The processing of wet coal, within a thermal coal powered generation system, results in a decline of production and plant efficiency. 

  • COSTLY DOWNTIME ASSOCIATED WITH THE CLEANING OF CONVEYOR AND MILLING EQUIPMENT.
  • REDUCED STACK TEMPERATURES RESULTING IN THE SHUT-DOWN OF EXHAUST SCRUBBER EQUIPMENT.
  • THE REQUIRED PURCHASE OF MEGAWATTS TO REPLACE LOST GENERATION.

These costly production setbacks can easily be avoided by the simple application of WET-LOK to the initial conveyor feed.  By applying ½ to 1½ pounds of WET-LOK, per ton of wet coal (based on moisture content), the above mentioned production issues can be eliminated and BTU’s per pound increased by more than 6,000.
