Vacuum System is generally adopted when the extraction distance is less, numbers of ESP hoppers are more and plant layout demands two-stage conveying. Vacuum System includes conveying of fly ash from various fly ash hoppers up to the intermediate / buffer / surge hopper (ISH) located near ESP. A second stage system - positive pressure system is employed to convey fly ash from ISH to main fly ash Silo(s).
