Self-cementitious Properties of Fly Ashes from CFBC Boilers Co-firing Coal and High-sulphur Petroleum Coke

Self-cementitious properties of fly ash from circulating fluidized bed combustion boiler co-firing coal and high-sulphur petroleum coke (CPFA) were investigated. CPFA was self-cementitious which was affected by its fineness and chemical compositions, especially the contents of SO3 and free lime (f-CaO). Higher contents of SO3 and f-CaO were beneficial to self-cementitious strength; the self-cementitious strength increases with a decrease of its 45 μm sieve residue. The expansive ratio of CPFA hardened paste was high due to generation of ettringite (AFt), which was influenced by its water to binder ratio (W/A), curing style, and grinding of the ash. The paste cured in water had the highest expansive ratio, and grinding of CPFA was beneficial to its volume stability. The hydration products of CPFA detected by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were portlandite, gypsum, AFt, and hydrated calcium silicate (C–S–H).
