The Muja power station, operated by Synergy is located in the Collie region of Western Australia. The plant operates by using coal to power steam turbines and boilers, to generate an output of over 800 megawatts of electricity. Initially, the power station had radioactive density meters installed to manage the concentration of fly ash slurry. The key goal of the process is to control the speed of the screw feeder that contains fly ash to keep an optimum pumping performance while minimizing water usage.
Some experienced benefits in Muja Power Station are:
- Ability to directly detect changing process conditions and control the speed of screw feed
- Easy calibration and monitoring of the device
- Eliminate the nuclear density meters on-site
