Coal Handling Systems

Ducon supplies complete coal handling systems for coal fired boilers. Coal handling at utilities requires specialized technology and equipment from unloading to crushing and dust control to fire protection.


Coal from the coal wagons is unloaded by Tipplers in the coal handling plant. This coal is transported up to the coal storage bunkers through conveyor belts.

Coal is then transported to the Crush house by conveyor belts where it is crushed to small pieces and light dust is separated. The crushed coal is then transported to the bowl mill by coal feeders.

In the bowl mill, coal is grounded to a powder form. The mill consists of a round metallic table on which coal particles fall. The crushed coal is then taken to the Boiler through coal pipes with the help of hot and cold air mixture.

Ducon systems are custom engineered solutions, utilizing its advanced equipment components, that provide low maintenance and operating costs.
