Fly ash is a difficult material to move, especially by truck. When it’s dry it blows away easily, creating a mess and environmental problems that lead to complaints and mechanical breakdowns. A better solution for coal and fly ash remediation is a conveyor system designed with purpose.
The EPA has mandated that all U.S. power plants have a solution in place for the safe removal and permanent storage of their fly ash and bottom ash, but the process can be complex and risky.
West River Conveyors builds conveyors for coal and fly ash remediation, systems specifically tailored to the materials being conveyed. The custom systems we create for the coal and fly ash remediation industry use high-quality parts that maximize reliability and up-time.
Share the details of your fly ash handling needs with us and we’ll follow up quickly to help you implement a solution.
West River Conveyors understands the challenges of stockpiling. Whether you’re looking for a conventional, radial, telescoping, or telescoping-radial stacker conveyor, we have the expertise to design and build a custom solution that meets your needs.
Our full range of highly engineered underground conveyor structure will provide you with a turnkey conveyor solution. Our underground rigid, catenary or wire structure comes in CEMA B, C, D, E, and E+ arrangements and can be used for longwall and room & pillar operations.
Aggregate materials can cause rips and tears in inferior belts. We have a wide range of heavy-duty surface conveyor belts to help decrease unplanned downtime while safely getting your aggregate from Point A to Point B.
Conveyors for coal and fly ash remediation are often extended, modified, or even repurposed. When you’re investing in new equipment, it must integrate seamlessly with what you already have. Spare parts availability and inventory are also significant concerns for fly ash conveyor system operators.
West River Conveyors understands the importance of these issues—we work with operators to minimize the complexity and variety of equipment used. When specifying a new system or additional equipment for you, we look at what’s in place now, and together we create a strategy to minimize your spare parts inventory.
Fly ash remediation can be a complex undertaking. A custom conveyor system will handle more per hour than a trucking fleet while generating less dust and noise.
We can help add to or upgrade an existing system or deliver a completely new system engineered to meet your needs and expectations.
Custom packages commonly include the following components:
When dry, fly ash is a light dust that readily coats surfaces with its combination of silicon dioxide, aluminum, and calcium oxide. When wet it becomes a heavy slurry that’s especially difficult to transport.
We can recommend accessories and upgrades that will improve safety and reliability while reducing operating costs and downtime. Some conveyors for coal and fly ash remediation need unique accessories—the most common include:
