Mixer for High-Speed Blending of Coal with Additives to Reduce Air Pollution
In this application, a Pekay Mixer is utilized to add a proprietary mixture to coal, just before entering into the utility’s furnace.
The belt speed was in excess of 500 fpm, which is quite above our typical speed. Satisfactory mixing was achieved, however, by correct wheel selection and wheel rotation speed.
This mixture was shown to significantly lower mercury pollution, and holds much promise for environmental concerns as the coal industry seeks to find ways to reduce pollution.
