Power Processing & Conveying Equipment

Electricity is typically generated using fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, or gas in internal combustion or combustion turbine conventional steam processes. Alternative fuels such as biomass and municipal solid waste are gaining in popularity because waste products are converted into usable forms of energy. Many biomass products are based on renewable forms of feedstock such as corn, sugarcane or wood. KWS has designed and manufactured equipment for conveying and processing coal, petroleum coke and every form of alternative fuel. Our equipment is designed for the extreme conditions of the various processes. We even cool extremely hot ash from coal and wood fired boilers from 1,800-degrees F to temperatures below 200-degrees F.
