Case study

fossil-fired power plant with biomass firing

The transport system from the gypsum preparation (after filter belt presses) to the gypsum warehouse is designed for a conveying capacity of 100 t / h, and for the transport from the gypsum warehouse to ship loading of 400 t / h.

All belt conveyors are set up in closed belt bridges and are easily accessible. Safety devices such as belt misalignment monitors, speed monitors and pull rope switches monitor the correct function.

The gypsum is temporarily stored in a warehouse; both storage and retrieval are carried out using a semi-portal scraper installed in the warehouse.
