Ash Handling Systems

Kraft Werks has been providing ash handling equipment since 1979. We supply retrofits under-furnace bottom ash handling conveyor systems to utility coal-fired power plants as well as retrofits ash extractors for municipal solid waste incinerators / waste-to-energy facilities.

submerged chain conveyor systems

Submerged Chain Conveyor Systems

  • Under-furnace SCC collects, cools and dewaters bottom ash in a single piece of equipment
  • Low water consumption: retrofit costly wet hopper and sluicing system
  • Available with furnace chutes, cooling water systems, transfer conveyors and control systems
  • Discharged ash ready for sale / disposal
  • Lower installed, operating, maintenance and inventory costs than redundant dewatering bins, settling and surge tanks, remote dewatering conveyor systems and dry mechanical or pneumatic systems
  • SCC can receive pulverizer rejects and economizer ash eliminating associated dewatering, storage and unloading equipment

Ash Extractor

  • Ideally suited for mass-burn MSW incinerators accommodating oversized / bulky and metal constituents in the ash
  • Cools and dewaters ash for downstream conveying and metal-separating equipment
  • Robustly constructed and heavily armored, replace light weight European extractors not suitable for US industrial waste streams
  • Modular design to support retrofits without requiring building modifications or major equipment removal
  • Collects under grate siftings and furnace back-pass hopper ash

Our ash handling systems are largely shop assembled – right here in Medina, Ohio.

Fluid Drive Coupling Repair

Centertown, KY
Kraft Werks was dedicated to ensuring our fluid drive coupling was repaired expeditiously – completely beating our expectations!
Kraft Werks originally estimated six to eight weeks on repairs for our fluid drive coupling – but they were able to complete the work faster than expected. We shipped the rotating assembly to Kraft Werks on June 7th and the housing to them on June 20th. They completed all work to the rotating assembly, completely assembled the fluid drive coupling

Kraft Werks has given me an amazing place to grow and be a part of a team that I love!
Kraft Werks for me is like family. I’ve known so many people here for years now – even before we became Kraft Werks. To be able to work with all these people at a company we built together is indescribable. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. People really do make everything happen here. Here you’re needed, valued
