BARNSLEY-based BJD Crushers have recently supplied six of their hammer mill units to a new co-generation power plant currently being built near Collie, in Western Australia.
The power station will comprise two 340 tonne/h circulating fluidized-bed boilers that will burn mainly coal and up to 30% waste wood products.
Installed in two banks of three, the hammer mill 24 x 20 crushers will provide ‘round-the-clock’ size reduction of coal, which will be used to feed the boiler units at the plant.
The crushers will produce –8mm material from an in-feed of up to 50mm at throughputs in excess of 27 tonnes/h.
Owing to their rugged construction and high reduction ratios, BJD say the hammer mill crushers are well suited to continuous-duty size reduction of coal, often being employed as primary units when two-stage reduction is required.
