Be it coal or biomass: Leading products for bulk material handling in power plants

    Innovative solutions and market leading technology for solid fuel fired power plants and industrial boilers

    Bulk material handling in coal-fired power plants and all associated sectors of industry is big business. The work is highly sought after, fiercely bargained for and stable – in terms of future-proofing. The market-leading solutions for weighing, feeding and automating in the field come from Schenck Process whose products are amongst the most reliable in the industry.

    The well-engineered product range includes everything from components to complete systems for bulk material handling at all process stages in the power plant industry.

    Proven a million times over in real life

    Schenck Process systems transport, screen and feed several million tons of raw materials a year. We can handle everything from coal, limestone, biomass and other alternative fuels to by-products from power plants such as ash and gypsum, by land or sea, by rail or road.

    Efficient. Safe. Precise.

    For our customers around the world, Schenck Process systems and components are a guarantee of maximum reliability and precision; for every boiler type and a very wide range of material properties.

    Schenck Process sets new quality and environmental standards

    In order to reduce NOx and CO² emissions in power plants, the flow of fuel and subsequent optimum combustion are crucial. Our range of gravimetric feed systems deliver precise feeding providing a safe, reliable and consistent material flow thus ensuring smooth production, increased efficiency and shorter downtimes. The gravimetric feed systems from Schenck Process are therefore the most commonly used and most well-known fuel feeders in the modern power plant sector.

    The increasing use of biomass to provide low carbon, cost effective and reliable renewable power requires handling systems that minimise dust to provide a clean and safe environment. By using proven pneumatic conveying technology that has been successfully used over many years and recently installed in one of the largest power stations in Europe, Schenck Process are able to use this expertise on other Biomass conversion projects for the Power Industry worldwide.

    Schenck Process environmental controls equipment offers solutions to address filterable particulate matter emissions. Our products lower baseline emission rates, reduce emissions during transient operating conditions and manage changes in inlet grain loading, fuel chemistry and gas flow.

    We operate worldwide, wherever we’re needed.

    Through our numerous global locations, we are able to provide local resources to support the individual requirements of our customers. Schenck Process provides expertise from concept development through the life of our equipment. We are able to meet special customer needs while maintaining excellent customer service around the world.
