Effect of changing biomass source on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite in fluidized bed combustors

2018-01-05
In this study, effect of changing biomass source on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite in the freeboard of 300 kW(t) Atmospheric Bubbling Fluidized Bed Combustor (ABFBC) is investigated by using an in-house developed radiation code based on Method of Lines (MOL) solution of Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM). The freeboard is treated as a 3D rectangular enclosure containing gray, absorbing, emitting gas with absorbing, emitting, anisotropically scattering particles surrounded by black/gray diffuse walls. Radiative properties of participating gases are evaluated by using Leckner's correlations and gray particle properties are calculated based on Planck's distribution from the spectral Mie solutions. Input data required for the model are provided from six combustion tests which were previously carried out for Can lignite with 14, 35 and 50% thermal shares of olive residue and hazelnut shells in the fuel mixture for the same Ca/S ratio. The results show that changing the biomass source affects the radiative properties of the particles in the freeboard through the change of particle size distribution rather than optical properties, which may lead to significant variations in radiative wall heat fluxes and source terms.

In this study, effect of particle concentration distribution on radiative heat transfer in circulating fluidized bed combustors (CFBCs) is investigated. The aim is to identify how important it is to include axial and radial variations of particle concentration along the splash and dilute zones in radiative heat transfer calculations and to determine the predictive accuracy of simple OD and 1D approximations for particle concentration distribution in the riser by benchmarking their predictions against a semi...
Effect of particle size and heating rate on the pyrolysis of Silopi asphaltite
Altun, Naci Emre; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 2003-5)
This study comprises the effect of particle size and heating rate on the pyrolysis of Silopi, Turkey asphaltite by non-isothermal thermogravimetry. The TG/DTG experiments were performed at five different heating rates with three different size fractions from ambient up to 900 degreesC in nitrogen atmosphere. The pyrolysis characteristics of the samples were analyzed using TG/DTG curves. Also, the pyrolysis kinetics of the samples were determined using the Arrhenius type kinetic model and ASTM methods.
