Working for, and as a consultant to the Monroe Power Plant of DTE Energy, I have had occasion to use this product and to work with ECG in developing additional applications for our generating station. It is a very significant product that allows us to maximize generation while managing such effects of fuel quality as slagging and fouling. The product allows us to manage, and shift, the blend of coals we burn to optimize firing conditions and energy generation.
Provides up to date information. Very user friendly.
ECG was able to take PI data gathered from multiple sources and create meaningful and intuitive graphics for our operators, as well as providing “future” data so that operations can be more proactive in operating the units and less reactive to changing fuel conditions. By showing what will be coming out of the burner in 1, 2, 4, and 8 hours’ time, operators have the information needed to run their mills and burners effectively.

good product and great support
We integrated the Accutrack with our online analyzer. It is amazing the benefits that we are getting from the integration. Accutrack gives us the ability to track coal quality through the silos. We imposed limits on the silos top layer which allows us to suspend fuel additives in case coal characteristics change dramatically. Accutrack is definitely a good solution that allowed us to track the coal from the pile to the mills. Like always, technical support is great as well as response time. The interface is easy and simple to use and color coded. We are looking into getting the upgrade, which will give us a silo models that takes rat holing into effect. We currently own a FIFO silo model.
