The raw coal is then fed into the pulveriser along with air heated to about 330 °C from the boiler. As the coal gets crushed by the rolling action, the hot air dries it and blows the usable fine coal powder out to be used as fuel. The powdered coal from the pulveriser is directly blown to a burner in the boiler.
Kiln, considered as heart of the cement plant needs to be fed with consistent raw meal at uniform feed rate. No mater how much consistent and perfect is your kiln feed quality from blending silo, variation in feed rate can disturb badly kiln operation stability, clinker quality and heat consumption.
ROM coal quality such as increased percentages of dirt, coal fines and moisture, which eventually add to the problems of coal beneficiation. The fine coal circuits in coal washeries are intricate, needing close attention and careful operation. Increase in fines in raw coal feed to washeries also adversely affects
In many plants they may also know the amount of coal being fed to an individual coal mill, either by calibrating the feeder or using load cells on the feed. ... was established in June of 2001 to ...

The statistical analysis showed that the weight percent blending of different coals and interaction between Lavidj and Karmozd regions ...
The coal feed is by either a screw or a mechanical ram which forces the coal the length of the retort and upward. The ash on this type of stoker is normally discharged with side dumping grates. These stokers will fire boilers in the size range of 3,000 to 30,000 pounds of steam per hour.

Coal blending is the process of mixing coals after coal has been mined to achieve quality attributes that are desirable for the coal's intended application (e.g. steam generation, coking). The quality attributes that are most important in blending will differ from one mine site to another and also depend on how the coal seams vary in quality and their final intended use.

Many breakers and washeries efficiently handle the coarser sizes, but waste the coal fines. This problem is assuming major importance due to the increase in the amount of coal fines being produced by the mechanization of coal mining. Flotation offers a very satisfactory low-cost method for recovering a fine, low ash, clean coal product at a profit.
