Equipment

Since 1951, FEECO has been bringing custom equipment and process solutions to the coal industry. We have extensive coal processing experience with a variety of coal-based materials in many forms, including:

 

  • Anthracite
  • Western Coal
  • Lignite/Brown Coal
  • Bituminous Coal
  • Coal Fines/Coal Dust
  • Coal Combustion Residuals (Coal Ash, Fly Ash)

 

Material Processing

De-dusting and Agglomeration

We offer a variety of custom agglomeration equipment for processing coal. Our pin mixers are an ideal fit for de-dusting applications. When combined with our disc pelletizers, coal fines can be processed into a pelletized product.

Pug mills (paddle mixers) and briquetters for processing coal fines into briquettes are also available.

 

Material Handling

We offer a complete line of material handling equipment both as stand-alone systems, as well as a complement to our processing equipment.

 

Belt conveyors, bucket elevators, steep incline conveyors, and reversing shuttle conveyors, can all be used to bring seamless fluidity and automation to your coal handling operation.

 

Additional equipment such as trippers and plows and belt feeders are available for increasing system flexibility.

 

Plant and Pilot Scale Process Testing and Design

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test your material at both batch and pilot scale in order to work out process variables and design commercial-scale units, as well as scale up the process.

 

The FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs, from de-dusting to agglomeration. We can test on a single piece of equipment, or a continuous process loop.

 

We offer comprehensive testing services in four categories:


Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.
Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.
Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.
Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
