Coal as a carrier of fossil energy
Coal is a solid, dark, combustible sedimentary rock. It consists mainly of the chemical element carbon and complex carbon compounds. Coal is mainly used as a carrier of fossil energy. Coal combustion is still a widespread technology worldwide for generating electrical energy. It is also important as a raw material in the production of coke and graphite and in iron smelting.
Binder+Co offers solutions for the screening of raw coal, intermediate products and coke. A wide variety of screening machines are used for this purpose.
The main areas are processes in the corresponding comminution circuits and the screening processes upstream of the density sorting processes.
In the area of any dense-medium separation plants, the use of DRAIN&RINSE screens is required. These screening machines are designed as linear vibrating screens for the coarser grain size range. For the finer grain size range, a special screening machine with the BIVITEC system is the better choice in order to avoid plug grain formation.
In addition, the coal is often dried before it is transported or burnt. This saves transport costs and increases the calorific value. Our DRYON fluidised bed dryer has proven itself for this purpose.
