AFBC boilers firing coal are not competitive with oil or gas .. versa. The disadvantage of an EHE is that it complicates the design and operation of the unit . There are more than 42 nos AFBC boilers operating worldwide which were designed as per Doosan Power System design and supplied either directly from the. It would be pointless to put whole Atmospheric Fluidised Bed Combustion (AFBC ) Boiler knowledge here. But from a quick search within Quora and Google you.

The results may not be directly applicable to the industrial setting.

To maintain consistency with the ITAR, the flow of PM from the cyclone was set equal to 10 percent of the poeration solids flow i. Pressurized fluidized bed combustion PFBC has been under development for several years, but has not yet been used in commercial applications.

Volume III, pp April A Midwest location is assumed. A more pragmatic consideration is: Potential markets for AFBC solid waste appear to be competitive and limited e. The table shows that the design bases for these large, operating systems are comparable to the “best system” conditions of the ITAR, upon which the ITAR cost estimates, and ultimately, the FBC cost algorithm, are based.

Cost Comparisons Among Independent Estimates The FBC algorithm design basis and methodology have been validated in part by comparison with independent estimates developed by five other organizations, four of which currently offer industrial-size FBC operafion on a commercial basis.

City of Galhvare American Can Co.

However, recent test data more clearly illustrate the capability of AFBC systems to reduce N0x emissions. Of notable significance are the research programs sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Electric Power Research Institute.

NJ Oedert Corp. Relative changes of a similar magnitude would be required for other boiler sizes and emission limits. Most of the N0x formed in AFBC units is due to the oxidation of fuel nitrogen; the rate of formation of thermally fixed N0x from combustion air is very slow due to the low combustion temperature.


However, the cost sources for these estimates opwration Westinghouse in-house cost files for the boiler and solids handling equipment and literature references. Cost Equations for Industrial Boilers.

This result is due to the presence of increased solids levels, i. The amount of solids from an FBC boiler is expected to equal or exceed those from a conventional coal-fired boiler with FGD. JB provided installed equipment costs for the FBC boiler, baghouse, instrumentation, and auxiliaries.

Pressurized FBC technology is in a relatively early stage of development and is more suitable for utility applications than industrial steam generation. Volume 2 pp The S02 emission levels chosen for examination are 1.

Although they represent typical conditions for industrial FBC boiler applications, they in no way stand for 1: Smaller limestone particles are operaion to a greater degree than large particles, resulting in improved S02 retention for a given amount of limestone. The overall operatlon of this study is to evaluate the development status of FBC systems and the influence of alternative S02 emission limits on the economic competitiveness of FBC relative to the two competing S02 control options.

The Lurgi system shown in Figure 3. The increase in S0? For abrasive fuels, special design considerations and provision of sacrificial shields.

Its Design and Operation. The San Miguel lignite has a silica-to-sodium ratio that is 4. These data show no significant deviation from earlier experimental data presented in the ITAR. Tests on various limestone grain sizes have shown that sulfur capture drops off rapidly, from 85 percent to 65 percent, as grain size increases from um to um. Lurgi Circulating Fluid Bed Boiler: Salt addition to a limestone calcining environment results in formation of trace amounts of liquid on the calcined limestone particles, with subsequent recrystal1ization of the particles and reformation of the particles’ pore structures.


Atmospheric Fluidised Bed Combustion Boiler (AFBC)

Capacity utilization is defined as the actual annual bpiler consumption as a percentage of the potential annual fuel consumption at maximum firing rate. Berry Radian Corporation Memorandum to C. The absolute value of any single cost estimate is accurate only to within the error bands specified above. Circulating bed AFBC units feature extensive recirculation of elutriated solids and staging of combustion air which serve to lower NO emissions, as previously stated.

Although coal sodium contributes to sulfur capture, it also increases the agglomerating tendencies of the coals.

Fluidized Bed Combustion Effectiveness Of An So2 Control Technology For Industrial Boilers

The fact that the gas residence time for the ITAR system is less than that for industrial installations suggests that ITAR estimates of boiler costs may be slightly higher than those for operating units. Recycle of elutriated material is recommended when overbed feeding is employed.

Rate of Nitric Oxide by Char. In the past, testing has tended to focus more on optimizing S02 control and combustion efficiency than on minimizing NO emissions. TEOR requires 80 percent quality steam at psia. Staged-beds and circulating FBC boilers appear to have the greatest potential for reducing NO emissions below this A level.

Presented at Coal Technology Boielr, Texas. Ahlstrom Dy No f. Operation began in mid-July, but data are not yet available.
