Biomass Ash Handling: Simplifying the Challenges

Ash handling is one of the most challenging aspects of boiler systems.

Ash is incredibly corrosive on its own and frequently has debris such as sand mixed in with it. Because of this, it has the capacity to damage equipment, incurring costly repairs and unanticipated downtimes.

This article outlines the primary risk factors associated with ash handling and discusses the proper ways to construct bottom ash removal systems, fly ash removal systems, and fly ash storage and unloading equipment to address common and costly ash handling pitfalls.
