No need for accurate sampling, weighing or measurement of evolved gases
Independent of coal source or particle size
On-line information is a considerable improvement compared to traditional 24 hour sampling followed by laboratory analysis. Real-time results are reported whilst they are still relevant to plant conditions.
This prompt information enables:
Rapid optimisation of mill and excess air settings
Optimisation of the combustion process
Mill performance monitoring
Improved fly ash quality, leading to increased sales to the cement industry
The Carbon in Fly Ash Monitor 350 is the latest in a series . The monitors use a microwave interrogation technique, which relies on different responses of carbon and the other particulate matter in the gas stream to determine the amount of carbon present.
The monitor is designed to connect to an industry standard isokinetic sampler. A sample of fly ash is collected from the flue gas duct and is fed into a sample tube, where the fly ash is vibrated to ensure optimum packing. The sample tube feeds the sample to the analysis zone. Once sufficient sample has been collected, the microwave analysis takes only a few seconds. This method ensures reliable and efficient method of fly ash analysis.
Scantech International | Real Time Analysis of Bulk Conveyed Materials
Scantech is the world leader in the application of on-line real-time measurement technologies for bulk materials. Scantech has over 1,000 analysers installed in 55 countries. Founded in 1981, the company has grown from a small private company based in South Australia to a successful public enterprise with an international business focus.
The platform for the company's early success was the commercialisation of scientific instrumentation developed by the CSIRO and the University of Queensland, resulting in the highly successful COALSCAN range of real time coal analysers. Since that time, new technologies have been developed using in-house R&D resources, whilst continuing to seek suitable technologies from external sources.
The company has developed and implemented a Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2008 BV Certified), assuring its customers of quality, safety and reliability of its products, production processes and services.
