boiler optimisation of coal power plants

Coal Quality Boiler Efficiency - Foundation

The Ash Handling Plants of most of the older power plants were designed to for the handling of lower ash volumes, as these plants were intended to operate on low Ash coals. At Kelvin we have experienced that the Ash Handling Plant can comfortably operate with coal up to roughly 24% Ash yield. Beyond 24% the Ash Handling Plant starts experiencing

Boiler Slagging

Boiler Testing & Optimization. exceeds the fusion temperature of ash from the coal being fired. To ensure operation without slagging, we typically recommend that F.E.G.T. be 100°F to 150°F below the ash softening temperature. Higher fineness, proper primary (pulverizer) airflow and good fuel balance reduce FEGT by allowing combustion to
