This book provides practicing engineers and students with insight into the design and operation of circulating fluidized bed boilers through a combination of theoretical concepts and practical instruction. Numerous examples from actual operating plants illustrate key concepts in combustion, hydrodynamics, heat transfer, and materials. The relevance of feed-stock parameters to the operation of CFB boilers is examined, including impacts on the design of mechanical components, such as cyclones, air distributor grids, and solid recycle systems. This versatile resource explains how CFB boilers work, and how the basic principles of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics influence design, while providing advice on planning new projects, troubleshooting existing equipment, and appreciating the capabilities and limitations of the process. From hydrodynamics to construction and maintenance, the author covers all the essential information needed to understand, design, operate, and maintain a complete fluidized bed system. Understanding how to leverage this technology is a must for clean coal operations as well as for biomass power generation.
