A note on large-size supercritical CFB technology development
Circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology has been continuously developing with an increasing number of large-capacity and supercritical CFB boilers being put into operation. This article reviews the current developments in large capacity CFB boilers in China and presents a note on the most recent development trends. It includes discussions on (1) gas-solid hydrodynamics in large-size CFB furnaces, (2) heat transfer on suspended surfaces, (3) combustion atmosphere and emissions, (4) 3-D CFD numerical simulation for large-scale supercritical CFB boilers, (5) integrated energy saving technologies, (6) optimal operation of an integrated desulfurization system, (7) erosion and protection of heat transfer surfaces, (8) problems in operation and their solutions, (9) combustion of coal with high alkali content.
