F. B. Culley Generating Station, Newburgh, IN.

A coal-fired power plant needed to improve the performance of a vibratory feed chute.


To improve coal feeding, a new vibrator and channel mount were installed on a vibrating feeder pan at F. B. Culley Station.

To improve the situation, Martin® Services installed a Martin® B Series Electric Vibrator on the bottom of the feeder pan. The crew also removed the existing UHMW lining and replaced the cables that suspend the vibrating pan.

The crew also rebuilt a 24 by 24 inch (600 by 600 mm) 18-foot (5.5 m) long “downcomer” coal chute, lining its bottom with 304 stainless steel. They installed two Martin® B Series Electric Vibrators on a channel mount on the outside of the chute to maintain material flow.


The installation included new chute linings with stainless and two electric vibrators on channel mounts installed by MartinPLUS® Installation Services.

The new feeder and chutes work as projected in the project proposal. In addition, the work of the Martin® Installation Services crew received rave reviews from plant officials. Their post project evaluation included the phrases: “Excellent work. Job cleanup very good. Crew very good to work with.”
