Coal Analysers | COALSCAN 2800

Supplier: Scantech International

The COALSCAN Model 2800 is a single enclosure designed to be installed directly on production conveyor belts.


The COALSCAN uses a dual gamma ray beam which passes through the entire bed of coal. One gamma ray measures the total ash content, the other compensates for changes in bed depth. Microwave technology measures the moisture content.

The standard COALSCAN can be customised to suit plant requirements. Options include:

  • Stainless steel electronics cabinet
  • SuperSCAN display and reporting system
  • Customised plant interfaces
  • Customised frames for wider belts and higher tonnage applications

COALSCAN Model 2800 Applications

Real time coal quality data provides active process control, with timely information on ash and moisture, to make decisions that maximise the value of the resource, optimise product quality and minimise operating costs.

Typical applications include:

  • Analysis of raw coal after crushing
  • Analysis of product coal between washery and stockpile or load-out bins
  • Analysis and blending control of coal during reclaim from stockpile, to ensure quality targets are met
  • Analysis of coal on delivery to power stations and steel plants, to monitor contract compliance and optimise coal use
  • Blending coals to take advantage of lower-cost, lower-quality coal whilst meeting specifications
  • Analysis of coal at power stations to optimise boiler-feed quality

COALSCAN Model 2800 Advantages

  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Low investment and maintenance costs
  • Simple installation
  • Suits most belt sizes and loads
  • Does not touch the coal or the conveyor belt
  • Simple calibration
