Energy & Power

Reliable handling of fuel and waste streams directly improves power plant efficiency. The Energy and Power industries have undergone major changes as a result of economic, environmental, and regulatory requirements.

Key changes include co-firing biomass with coal, installing air pollution control (APC) and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, or switching to low-sulfur (e.g., PRB) or waste coals (e.g., gob, culm).  Whether feeding a pulverized coal combustor (PCC), a circulating fluidized bed (CFB), or stoker boiler, reliable handling of fuels and their waste streams is critical to energy and power plant operations.

Energy & Power Industry Services

Whether you are reclaiming fuel from a stockpile, feeding biomass for co-firing with a fossil fuel, or conveying waste streams to storage silos, Jenike & Johanson can help you achieve reliable material flow and powder transport at your Energy and Power facilities.

Common Energy & Power Industry Challenges

Poor material flow in the Energy and Power industries will yield electrical generation losses, throughput limitations, non-uniform processing, dust emissions/spillage, bunker fires, and even equipment failure.  These problems require frequent operator intervention and increase maintenance costs.  A significant amount of equipment designed decades ago to receive, convey, crush and pulverize traditional fossil fuels is no longer suitable for handling biomass or biofuels used for co-firing.
