Application

In a coal power plant, either hard coal or brown coal is burned as the main fuel source. The coal is transported on conveyor belts to the furnace. To avoid backup or overfilling at the belt transfer stations, level controls are necessary. Because only a reliable level measurement at these belt transfer stations can ensure uninterrupted feeding of the furnaces with coal. Additional point level detectors are installed to prevent overfilling.
