Thermal power plants generate more than half of the world’s electric power by burning millions of tonnes of coal and simultaneously produce large quantity of coal ash. Slurry pipelines are commonly used across the world for the transportation of coal ash (fly ash and bottom ash) from the plant to the ash ponds in thermal power plants. Most of the pipelines operating today in thermal power plants transport ash at low or medium solid concentrations over short as well as medium distances. These systems are very energy intensive and also lead to excessive wear of pipeline and wastage of water. Further, the present enhanced consciousness towards the imbalance in the eco-system and related stringent government policies are forcing the thermal power plants to adopt environment friendly transportation systems. Thus, high concentration slurry disposal (HCSD) system has emerged as preferred option to transport coal ash in thermal power plants as it is economical and environment friendly. Kaushal et al. [2–5] have used CFD modeling to simulate pipeline and open channel flows transporting particles.
Power generators across the industry are facing challenges to reduce pollutants within their existing processes and perform more eco-friendly methods of plant operation. Clyde Bergemann offers a turnkey environmentally friendly High Concentration Slurry Disposal solution (HCSD) to help operators increase efficiency and reduce water consumption when disposing of ashes to land fill sites.
Conventional lean concentration slurry disposal systems (LCSD) whilst widely adopted through-out the industry do come with a number of significant limitations, such as higher power consumption, large land mass requirement and ground water pollution. These limitations have driven the development and adoption of environmentally friendly ash disposal technologies such as HCSD.
