ESTIMATION OF MOISTURE CONTENT IN COAL IN COAL MILLS

When the moisture content of the coal is higher than assumed it would take longer time to dry the coal, resulting in changed dynamics of the coal mill, and accumulation of coal in the coal mill. This will evidently change the possible performance of the power plant in general.

Effect of moisture in coal on station heat rate and fuel

Aug 04, 2016the best way to prevent coal from moisture in power plant is to use alcox space frame structure. Indian coals inherently contain low inherent moisture (IM) (5.5-9.5 % with an average of around 7.5 %) and moisture addition is through the surface moisture (SM) due to sources external to the coal.

Woodchips - Wikipedia

The moisture is decided by the handling of the raw material. If the trees are taken down in the winter and left to dry for the summer (with teas in the bark and covered so rain can't reach to them), and is then chipped in the fall, the woodchips' moisture content will be approximately 20–25%.
