Lamar Benton

Lamar Benton is a Field Service Engineer for Babcock & Wilcox with more than 22 years of field experience. He specializes in the service and optimization of CE/Alstom pulverizers (RB, RS, RSP, HPS, and HP series), as well as general stoker-fired boiler operational expertise.

Eric Fuller

Eric Fuller

Eric has over 22 years of pulverizer and fuel preparation experience at B&W and one patent titled “System for Controlling Coal Flow in a Coal Pulverizer.” Eric spent the first eight years in Pulverizer Graphics working with designers and engineers refining the pulverizer product and bringing new ideas to fruition. Eric then spent two years with B&W’s Field Service and his time was spent doing pulverizer rebuilds and upgrades at sites across the United States. Installing rotating throat assemblies are what he remembers most after completing a lot of the drawings used during his time in Pulverizer Graphics. He cites thoroughly understanding the design of the products in his success with installing the products in the field.

Eric then transferred to Pulverizer Design Engineering where he spent lots of time designing new pulverizer products for the replacement parts business and a completely new design for the B&W-118 Roll Wheel Pulverizer. Eric has experience with just about every facet of the pulverizer and has been mentored by some of the best pulverizer engineers in the industry.

Eric spends a lot of his time at B&W’s service center advising on gearbox rebuilds, quality issues with parts and other assembly procedures that the shop may have questions on. He is also involved with the competitor parts initiative. His most gratifying experience was installing the product he has a patent on, seeing it operate correctly and achieving the targeted numbers predicted.
