a pulverized coal-fired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal (also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup) that is blown into the firebox.
in 1924 detroit edison brought on line perhaps the third pulverized coal power plant built in the united states. the plant located 18 miles south of detroit was intended to absorb much of the burgeoning demand for electricity in the detroit economy .the plant located adjacent to the trenton channel of the detroit river was accessible to two railroads for coal delivery.
for use in thermal power plants coal is ground into dust using a device called a powdered coal mill. the resulting product called powdered coal or pulverized coal is then generally used in a fossil fuel power plant for electricity generation. pulverised coal is a significant dust explosion hazard as large quantities are suspended in air for
