Srikanth, S and Rao, D S and Das, Swapan K and Ravi Kumar, B and Nandakumar, K and Dhanuskodi, R and Vijayan, P (2003) Combustion and deposit formation behavior on the fireside surfaces of a pulverized fuel boiler fired with a blend of coal and petroleum coke. Combustion Science and Technology, 175 (9). pp. 1625-1647.
The thermochemistry of the combustion of a blend of coal and 5% petroleum coke was analyzed. Thermodynamic modeling and microscopic techniques were used to study the behavior of the inorganic constituents upon combustion of the blend of coal and petroleum coke. The chemical composition and phase constitution of the combustion products, as well as the deposits at several temperatures corresponding to those at the various parts of the boiler, were deduced by free-energy minimization. These results were compared with actual results obtained from a commercial pulverized fuel boiler fired with coal and petroleum coke blend. The deposits on the fireside surfaces of the boiler tubes in the various parts (water walls, platen superheater, final superheater, economizer, and electrostatic precipitator) of the commercial pulverized fuel boiler fired with coal and 5% petroleum coke were characterized by particle size analysis, chemical analysis, x-ray diffraction, optical microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. The combustion gas composition was measured using a portable on-line gas analyzer for N 2 , O 2 , CO 2 , H 2 O, CO, NO, and SO 2 . The thermodynamically predicted compositions and phase constitutions for the gas phase as well as the condensed phases are in good agreement with the experimental results.
