Coal-fired power plant overview

Coal stock level

SITRANS LR560 for economic fuel management and continuous supervision of the coal stock is essential. Non-contact, high-frequency radar technology offers a reliable and accurate solution for level measurement in harsh, dusty environments.


Pulverized coal flow detection

Pulverized coal is pneumatically conveyed to the burner through distribution lines. To ensure coal is routed correctly and steadily flowing, the SITRANS AS100 provides early detection if a line is blocked. 


Reliable main stream monitoring

Ultra-supercritical installations generate high temperatures and pressures. To ensure optimal performance, SITRANS P pressure and SITRANS T temperature transmitters monitor the water-stream cycle.


Gas analyzers for optimal burner control

ULTRAMAT 23 and OXYMAT 6 provide continuous monitoring and optimizing of the combustion process for power plant efficiency.

Combined cycle power plant

Steam drum level control

Reliable drum level control is vital to ensure operation for fast load changes. SITRANS P pressure transmitters are suitable for high pressure and temperature applications.


Level measurement in water treatment

SITRANS Probe LU level measurement on inlets, basins, filter beds and storage tanks ensures the water supply of the power plant.


Universal flow measurement

SITRANS F M MAG 3100 and MAG 6000 are electromagnetic flow meters suitable for water treatment flow measurements such as raw water, chemical dosing and back washing.

Energy from waste plant

Ensuring raw material fuel supply

SITRANS LUT400 are compact, long-range controllers for level measurement in bunkers and automated crane processes from waste arrival to combustion.


Accurate weighing of by-products

Milltronics MSI belt scale can provide the necessary information about feed rate and total weight to enable resale of by-products such as ash, metals and aggregates.


Emission monitoring

Siemens standard CEMS system is a low-cost emissions monitoring package designed to monitor predefined ranges of nitrogren oxides, carbon monoxide and oxygen.


Filter level detection

Dust collectors equipped with a high-level Pointek CLS300 switch can automate the emptying process. These switches are resistant to high temperature and abrasion.


Accredited heat metering

The ability to accurately monitor and control water flow and derive energy usage is essential for measuring thermal power. Siemens energy calculators are designed for use in cooling/heating applications.
