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.

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:
