Petcoke, is a residual product of crude oil and gets its name from petroleum and coal. Petcoke is black solid waste, having high calorific value left over by various refineries/distilleries. It has high calorific value, but low volatile content, which leads to poor ignition.
Petcoke is becoming popular in todays world and it is replacing fuel, it is acting as a supplementary fuel in various industries, due to its comparative low price. Many industries use Petcoke. Such as, Boilers, Cement Industries, Power Plants indulged into Power Generation etc. Petcoke, being a waste product but, compared to coal and other fuels have high calorific value and much lower price, comparatively.
Petcoke is a cheap fuel to be used now a days, but, its use, creates certain problems, due to high sulphur and low volatility. Petcoke is required to be finely grounded to obtain full advantage of its calorific value, so that, it burns easily and completely. The high sulphur content in Petcoke, creates operational problems in the kiln, which can normally be sorted out by using a bypass system. The Bucket Elevator, can be used to make movement of petcoke easy and possible in effective manner, in order to utilize Petcoke with higher percentage of Sulphur, a bypass system that withdraws 15-20% of kiln gases is required, alongwith it. Bucket Elevators are serving this purpose easily.
As bypass system works together with Bucket Conveyors. We Neo conveyors, specialist in manufacturing of bucket elevators can serve this purpose. Neo Conveyors are providing various types of conveyors and serving various industries.
