Heyl & Patterson Inc., a world leader in thermal processing and bulk material handling systems, has signed an exclusive partnership with BHJD Mining Engineering & Technology LLC, an equipment procurement and construction company based in Beijing, China, that specializes in coal preparation plants.
This agreement combines Heyl & Patterson’s world-class engineering and manufacturing skills with BHJD’s sales and marketing expertise in China. Coal preparation plants wash coal and prepare it for transport to power plants and steel mills. An industrial dryer at the end of the process will increase the coal’s heat content and make it a higher-value product. Heyl & Patterson has been an industry leader in coal drying technology since its founding in 1887.
“This is a fantastic business opportunity with one of the most innovative companies in China,” said John Edelman, president of Heyl & Patterson. “It will give Heyl & Patterson the chance to reach out to a new geographic market and collaborate with a business in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.”
BHJD was established in 2006 and has quickly become a leading provider of engineering design, construction, project management, and production operations to the coal and power industries. The company has also completed projects in lignite, kaolinite, non-metallic minerals, and non-ferrous metals.
Heyl & Patterson Inc. provides custom-engineered solutions for thermal processing and bulk material handling applications around the world. Thermal processing products and services include some of the largest high-efficiency dryers and coolers in the world, as well as calciners, bulk material processors, and pilot plant laboratory testing systems.
