Coal Fired Power Plant Case Study

Industrial Vacuum For Coal Power Plant

industrial vacuumCoal-fired power plants can be dirty and dangerous facilities. Accumulated coal dust that exists throughout the plants is a major explosion and fire hazard. Industrial vacuums are safe and reliable pieces of equipment to help mitigate this problem. At this particular facility, we built a custom central vacuum system that was run throughout the facility. They are able to clean the entire crusher and boiler rooms located within the power plant campus. The coal dust is discharged directly back into the plant conveyor system thus not generating any waste. Due to the site constraints and large site of the power plant, we also provided them with a large 40HP powerlift portable industrial vacuum. This vacuum is used to pick-up fly ash and large spills that occur in the loading areas. With a 3” hose, the powerlift vacuum can handle just about anything you throw at it. By building safe and reliable industrial vacuum systems, we not only helped clean this plant up, but also made it a much safer environment to operate.
