MECONTROL Flow rope breaking devices and adjustable splitters are used to evenly distribute the PF concentration to the different pipes - adjustable trimming dampers retrospectively integrated to the pipes regulate the flow velocities.
PF flow monitoring system
The PF-massflow is monitored by a permanently installed MECONTROL Coal system which measures flow velocity and PF concentration with two independent measuring principles. Furthermore the air flows are also monitored using PROMECON technology.
After six months of project execution for system implementation, conversion of the ductwork and initial tuning, first results of operation are very promising. The powerplant now runs within design specifications and generates more energy than before. The cost for conversion will be amortised within the next year. Many problems which evolve insidiously can now be observed much earlier, which maintains a better availability of the plant. .
