Currently, emphasis is placed on the efficiency of process technology in the production of energy. Large energy corporations are forced to develop new and optimize existing technologies to reduce emission limits. In coal and biomass combustion technologies, it is important to continually monitor and evaluate the quality of input material. A sampling device is used to obtain a representative sample of the fuel from the continuous conveying process. In this research work, the effect of setting the operating conditions of the rotating sampling device for coal, which is intended for combustion, is investigated. From the operating tests, we found that the different settings of the sampling device (velocity, dimensional parameters) influence the quality and quantity of a representative sample of coal taken from the belt conveyor of the technological line.
