We believe in the concept of
Ideas are no one's monopoly
And, brainstorming sessions have helped us in many process innovations.
In BEL Barkhera, we have gone beyond the OEM traditional design to reduce the Loss of Ignition in the fly ash. We have also initiated a project for improvement of coal combustion with equal distribution of secondary air, to avoid the rich mixture of coal passing through the dead zone of bed ash cooler nozzle, when the bed ash cooler is not in service.
OEM designed of instrument air pressure was for higher pressure setting for opening and closing of the Turbine QCNRV valve. For saving of the auxiliary power consumption we have reduced the set point of the instrument air set pressure as compared to the designed value and commissioned successfully.
Every employee is motivated to search innovative ideas for betterment in process. The different groups at stations also run diff. campaigns for energy conservation and efficiency initiations.
In TKIL CFBC Boiler Coal is fed into the furnace by coal feeders (Drag chain feeders), we used to face chronic air puffing problem from the coal feeders and the matter was also taken up by with TKIL in the customer care meet, BEL Barkhera have rectified this problem by providing air curtain in the discharge chute so that air puffing gets restricted by the air curtain.
