STATE OF FLUIDIZED BED COMBUSTION TECHNOLOGY

Low quality fuels can be burned directly in fluidized-beds while taking advantage of low furnace temperatures and chemical activity within the bed to limit SO2 and NOx emissions. The excellent heat transfer characteristics result in a reduction of total heat transfer surface requirements. Tests on beds operating at pressures of one to ten atmospheres, at temperatures as high as 1600 deg F, and with gas velocities in the vicinity of four to twelve feet per second, have proven the concept.
