Understanding fluidised bed combustion, CCC/76

Fluidised bed combustion differs from conventional pulverised coal combustion. It uses a continuous stream of air to create turbulence in a mixed bed of fuel, inert material and coarse fuel ash particles. Combustion occurs at lower temperatures typically between 800?C and 900?C. This report reviews the fundamental aspects of the technology. It provides an up-to-date understanding of the mechanisms and chemical reactions involved in fluidised bed combustion and how process parameters and/or fuel quality may affect fluidisation, combustion and pollutant formation.
