Repeated Catastrophic Mechanical Failures of 62 Ton/Hr Coal Pulverizers
A fundamental failure analysis approach was developed and performed on the mechanical systems which led to a failure root cause determination and resolution. Some of the fundamentals included witnessing complete major component tear down and reassembly; visual inspection of every component; and observing wheel oil sampling and draining techniques. This presentation will demonstrate a simple approach to resolving a series of major and expensive repeat failures.
