Control Equipment

SKU: CHCEQ00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The components of a coal handling system are operated with control equipment. The proper operation of the control equipment ensures that the components are started and stopped in the correct sequence so that coal moves smoothly from one component to the next. If one of the components in the sequence is not operated properly, the entire system could come to a stop, and equipment could be damaged. This course describes how control equipment is used to operate coal handling components so that they work together smoothly as a system. Troubleshooting procedures that can be used to determine the cause of a coal handling system malfunction also are covered.
