BLENDSCAN COAL software for coal blending control is provided to ensure that the quality of the coal sent to the yard, load out, bunkers and boilers is consistent and within specifications.

The software takes data from real time analysers to improve real time control for ash, Chlorine, and Sulphur content to ensure optimal energy production for boilers by controlling quality and minimising risk of exceeding environmental limits in power generation, or meeting composition specification in metallurgical coal.

"Fast or online coal property analysis would greatly improve coal pricing reliability and combustion optimization for power generation, especially in China."
