The planning and design of new power stations can involve complex interaction between the many engineering disciplines involved as well as environmental, planning, economical, political and social pressures. This volume aims to provide a logical review of the procedures involved in power station development. The engineering aspects are outlined in detail, with examples, showing the basis of the relationships involved together with qnon-engineeringq factors so that the engineer can draw on the information provided for specific projects. The civil engineering and building of power stations are also treated, from the earliest planning and site selection studies, through estimating, finance and quantity surveying, to final landscaping.Consideration is also given to avoiding low trap points in boiler gas ducting to prevent any build-up of dust within the ducting. ... The dust handling plant is usually entirely automatic requiring no manual intervention except in cases of failure and hence operates on a 24 hour basis. 21.3 Ash and dust disposal There are several different methods of ash transport and disposal used by the CEGB, each suitedanbsp;...
