Clyde Bergemann Supports Taiwan Power Company with DRYCON, Dry Bottom Ash Handling
Taiwan Power Company logo

In cooperation with ATE Energy, Clyde Bergemann supported the Taiwan Power Company in the implementation of environmentally friendly upgrades.

Clyde Bergemann successfully converted the ash removal from wet to dry on more than half the boilers at the plant, six so far – resulting in a sustainable environmentally friendly alternative for the essential ash removal.

Clyde Bergemann supplied the DRYCON, including isolating gates; fabric compensator; hydraulic unit; observation camera; diverter chutes with jaw crusher and infrared pyrometer.

DRYCON offers the following benefits:

• High conveying capacity

• The modular construction principle allows flexible adaption of length-width ratio guaranteeing efficient material cooling at maximum extraction rate

• Impacts of large ash lumps are directed onto impact beams – no stress to any important moving

• Less wear due to no friction moving parts

• High inclination possible resulting in the use of only one conveyor conveying directly to the silo

Part of the project was also the construction and design of the hopper. Due to the success of the project and collaboration, the customer plans to appoint Clyde Bergemann for future projects.
