Coal Analysers | COALSCAN 1500

Supplier: Scantech International

The COALSCAN Model 1500 Coal Analyser measures the level of natural gamma radiation relating to potassium, thorium and uranium contained in the coal ash.


Unlike other ash monitors in the COALSCAN range, Model 1500 contains no radioactive source. The COALSCAN Model 1500 incorporates a large scintillation detector, which is mounted between conveyor idlers directly under the centre line of the belt. This detector is shielded from external radiation by a lead lining within the detector assembly, as well as an overbelt lead shield.

Note - ash precision depends on variability of ash composition; actual precision will be calculated for each application. Contact Scantech for more information.

COALSCAN Model 2800 Applications

Real time coal quality data provides active process control, with timely information on ash content to make decisions that maximise the value of the resource and minimise operating costs. Typical applications include:

  • Mine grade control for rapid assessment of the coal being delivered to the stockpile or preparation plant;
  • Measurement of ash in thick coal beds such as raw coal or plant feed conveyors;
  • Preparation plant feedback control, installed after washery, to provide rapid feedback of washing process;
  • Train load out control;
  • Ideal for coal types with highly variable iron or calcium content.
