Power plant's centrifugal compressors provide motive air for pneumatic conveying of fly ash
A power plant needed to pneumatically convey fly ash 500 feet from an electrostatic precipitator to silos, so the plant chose centrifugal compressors to provide the motive air.
Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company's [CEI's] Unit 9 power plant generates up to 650 megawatts to provide electricity for customers in northeastern Ohio. Hourly, the power plant's coal-fired, 10-story-tall boiler uses heat from 250,000 pounds of coal powder burned at 3,000ºF to heat water in boiler tubes. This supplies 4.5 million pounds of steam to drive a power-generating turbine.
