Coal Storage – A Modern solution of bulk storage

Coal Storage – A Modern solution of bulk storage

Coal Use:

For many centuries, coal was burned in small stoves to produce heat in homes and factories. As the use of natural gas became widespread in the latter part of the twentieth century, coal oil and coal gas quickly became unpopular since they were somewhat smoky and foul smelling. Today, the most important use of coal, both directly and indirectly, is still as a fuel, but the largest single consumer of coal for this purpose is the electrical power industry.

The combustion of coal in power-generating plants is used to make steam, which, in turn, operates turbines and generators. For a period of more than 40 years beginning in 1940, the amount of coal used in the United States for this purpose doubled in every decade. Although coal is no longer widely used to heat homes and buildings, it is still used in industries such as paper production, cement and ceramic manufacture, iron and steel production, and chemical manufacture for heating and for steam generation.

Another use for coal is in the manufacture of coke. Coke is nearly pure carbon produced when soft coal is heated in the absence of air. In most cases, 1 ton of coal will produce 0.7 ton of coke in this process. Coke is valuable in industry because it has a heat value higher than any form of natural coal. It is widely used in steel making and in certain chemical processes.
Coal Storage – A Modern solution of bulk storage

Storage shed: 

We would like to propose Long Span Steel Shed, which can be used to cover coal; it can built with a span of up to 150 m and height of up to 40 m. The construction systems uses mild steel in case of  coal storage, no welding is required because the connection of the member consists of a very efficient moment-resistant mechanical joint. Coal storage shed may be built in single- or double-layer configurations, depending on the load and span. Experience suggests long spans are required in coal storage, a-double-layer is the most cost-effective.
Coal storage sheds are often built over operating stockpiles since construction can proceed without interrupting operations. Because our erection process does not require machines to be installed internal periphery of the span.

 Advantage of storage shed:

  • For achieving effective prevention and control of potential fugitive emission
  • Lesser Operation and Maintenance cost
  • Comply with current environmental guidelines
  • Protection from weird environmental condition


Our Structure is fully complying with new environmental regulations for air quality, Prevention and control of fugitive emission. Instead of investing in temporary solution, it is recommended to adopt permanent solution. Our solutions presented here not only allow affordable compliance, but also enhance the reputation of your plant. In addition, one time investment is much more economical than the periodic investments. If you have any questions on coal storage, contact us.
