Trouble-free continuous operation of coal-fired powerplants, Cologne/Germany ((01.-02.10.2009)

Improper design of bulk material storing and handling systems can entail reduced operating cycles, replacement expenses or even unwanted plant failures. The costs associated with such incidents are in no relation to the increased expenses for technical design and the use of materials matched to the particular application. In the long run protection matched to the specific operating conditions will yield better economy.

The Essen-based Haus der Technik offers the specialist event “Trouble-free continuous operation of coal-fired powerplants” on 01.-02.10.2009 in Cologne. The conference will inform on aspects of wear, wear protection materials and the application of wear protection oriented on basic circumstances and practical considerations. It will thus provide sound advice for solutions and the optimization of process engineering technology, especially for coal fired power plants.
