Fluidized bed boilers use a hot bed in the bottom of the bed as a combustion source. This bed is fluidized by blowing hot air up through the bed at a high velocity. Fluidization provides good mixing and allows for effective combustion when fuel is added.
At the bottom of the boiler furnace there is a bed of inert material. Bed is where the coal or fuel spreads. Air supply is from under the bed at high pressure. This lifts the bed material and the coal particles and keeps it in suspension. The coal combustion takes place in this suspended condition. This is the Fluidized bed.
Circulating Fluidized-Bed (IR-CFB) Boilers Drawing upon our extensive technical expertise and operating experience, B&W developed the Internal Recirculation Circulating Fluidized-Bed (IR-CFB) boiler which is the technology of choice for power plant owners seeking economy, reliability and flexibility.
Introduction. Circulating fluidized bed is a relatively new technology with the ability to achieve lower emission of pollutants. Extensive research has been conducted on this technology within the past 15 years due to increasing concerns over pollution caused by traditional methods of combusting coal and its sustainability.
" (FBC) Fluidized bed combustion is a combustion technology used to burn solid fuels in steam boilers.". In Fluidized Bed Combustion Boiler technology When air or gas is passed through an inert bed of solid particles such as sand supported on a fine mesh or grid, the air initially will seek a path of least resistance and pass upward through the sand.
Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) is a combustion technology used to burn solid fuels.. In its most basic form, fuel particles are suspended in a hot, bubbling fluidity bed of ash and other particulate materials (sand, limestone etc.) through which jets of air are blown to provide the oxygen required for combustion or gasification.
Fluidized Bed Combustion takes place when the forced draught fan supplies air to the Furnace of the Boiler. In the furnace, and is (used for Bubbling phenomenon) placed on the Bed and is heated before fluidization , the air enters the bed from the nozzles fitted on the Furnace Bed.
Ultra-Supercritical Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boilers. 660 MWe for lignite B, higher for hard coal, for low-grade and difficult-to-burn fuels such as anthracite, lignite, petroleum coke, oil shale, discarded coal and biomass, GE offer circulating fluidized bed technologies with different arrangements suited to fuel .
