Mar 05, 2002 Benefits from these measurements include mill primary air flow and unburned carbon reduction. Coal flow measurement technology is also advancing quickly towards systems that allow an active control of air and fuel for combustion balancing. A development step in this trend is the automatic adjustment of secondary air flow to the measured coal flow.
