ALS is internationally recognised for expertise and unique facilities in evaluating thermal coal combustion behaviour and optimising coal combustion processes.
Our pilot-scale coal pulveriser and boiler simulation furnace provide comprehensive assessment and benchmarking of the combustion performance of coals and coal blends as they would perform in industrial applications. Historical data allows high-resolution modelling of a coals’ potential performance in combustion and milling processes. ALS combustion experts are also available to witness trial burns in power stations to ensure that coal is fully and fairly evaluated.
- Testing and evaluation of thermal coal utilisation performance including:
o handling and stockpile behaviour
o milling performance
o combustion/burnout efficiency
o slagging and fouling behaviour
o propensity for formation of NOx and Sox
o precipitability of ash
o Fly Ash Disposal and Utilisation
- Performance ranking of combustion behaviour
- Troubleshooting and expert witnessing of coal combustion performance in power station applications
- Technical evaluations of coal supply tenders for power utility companies and other coal users
