Shaft Failures in Coal Handling Plants

Ranganath, V R (2001) Shaft Failures in Coal Handling Plants. In: Proceedings of Workshop on Recent Trends in Structural Integrity Assessment. NML, Jamshedpur, India, Jamshedpur, pp. 32-38. ISBN 81-87053-62-3



An analysis of premature failures in coal pulveriser mill shafts brings out the facts that the auxiliary units, in a power plant, like coal feeders, pulverizer mills elc., do not receive much attention during routine inspections and lack in property specification for the materials. It is brought out in this investigation that mere specification of material composition and hardness is not enough for load bearing components operating under cyclic loads.
