  • AMETEK Land - World Coal - Beat the Heat

    Between the time a piece of coal is dug out of the ground and is burned in a power plant boiler, it has been through many stages of transportation and storage. One of the advantages of coal as a fuel for power generation is the ability to store substantial quantities on site. This provides a strategic buffer of at least one month's fuel supply, which can be valuable if there is a short- or ...
