When lignite is mined, wet coal is transported by conveyor systems to the processing station. The hoisting systems transport the lignite vertically on metal sheets.
The heavy, wet coal causes the sheets to wear quickly. And, the sticky coal causes blockage that has to be cleaned again and again.
Coating the conveyor sheets with PlasmaCoat« protects the metal from wear and the coal no longer sticks.
The sheets can transport the wet coal without malfunction. The sheets do not need to be replaced as frequently. Cleaning and maintenance costs were reduced considerably.
