Avoiding the sintering of coal fired shallow fluidized beds
Afilaka, Daniel T. (2016) Avoiding the sintering of coal fired shallow fluidized beds. EngD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Fluidised bed combustion (FBC) has been identified as one of the best technologies available for lump coal combustion. A major drawback during prolonged operation of FBC systems particularly bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) systems is sintering and agglomerate formation of bed material that affects performance efficiency and reliability in industrial applications as exemplified at Associated British Sugar (AB Sugar). The mechanisms responsible for sintering and agglomerate formation in this type of system need to be understood, to promote continual use of this technology for efficient coal utilisation.
