Stackers

SKU: CHSTA00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Plants that burn coal typically store their coal in outdoor piles. To move the coal to the storage pile, a machine called a stacker is often used. An important aspect of coal handling is operating a stacker, coordinating its operation with the rest of the coal handling system, and keeping it in good working condition by performing regular inspections and minor maintenance.
