Ronik Inspectioneering, a Dutch inspection company, together with Flyability performed the general visual inspection of the boiler of a coal-fired power plant near Amsterdam. It was carried out with Elios: the world’s first collision-tolerant UAV, especially well suited for the exercise.
Most pulverized-coal-fired boilers have at least one extra pulverizer to allow routine maintenance to be performed without reducing the boiler load. Selection of the number of pulverizers needed to handle the desired load is based on the heat content and grindability of the coal because these charac- teristics affect pulverizer capacity.
3 3-90-70741r140813 The VF 3000 Stoker Boiler features our patented Verti-Flow™ Coal Feeder. The VF 3000 has a 5,000 to 95,000 BTU range and 250 lb. coal hopper capacity.
A fundamentally sound boiler PM program basically involves three steps: fireside maintenance, waterside maintenance, and system diagnostics. Fireside maintenance consists of manually cleaning particulates that accumulate on the fireside of the boiler. This process increases as the heat gets absorbed and makes the system more efficient.
At one of the coal-fired plant, one of the two boilers was shut down for repairs, and particle measurements were obtained inside the boiler as maintenance work was conducted. Control rooms: these include the main control rooms and control rooms at locations such as the baghouse building and the ash loading area.
PM emissions from anthracite coal combustion are a function of furnace firing configuration, firing practices (boiler load, quantity and location of underfire air, soot blowing, fly ash reinjection, etc.), and the ash content of the coal. PC-fired boilers emit the highest quantity of PM per unit of fuel

The boiler’s fuel and burner system requires proper inspection and maintenance to ensure efficient operation, heat transfer and correct flame detection. The Federal Energy Management Project (FEMP) O&M Best Practices Guide to Achieving Operation Efficiency is a good resource describing a preventive maintenance plan and also explaining the
boiler 10 was originally a CE stoker boiler. Boiler 1 and 2 existing burners were arranged in a 2x2 configuration while the boiler 10 was fired by coal feeders and four (4) bark chute openings evenly spaced above the feeders. Boiler 10 was designed to burn stoker coal and wood fuel on an air cooled traveling grate.
