David Tillman, "Solid Fuel Blending: Principles, Practices, and Problems"
2012 | ISBN: 0123809320 | 336 pages | PDF | 9 MB
This title helps you to create affordable solid fuel blends that will burn efficiently while reducing the carbon footprint. "Solid Fuel Blending Handbook: Principles, Practices, and Problems" describes a new generation of solid fuel blending processes. The book includes discussions on such topics as flame structure and combustion performance, boiler efficiency, capacity as influenced by flue gas volume and temperature, slagging and fouling, corrosion, and emissions. Attention is given to the major types of combustion systems including stokers, pulverized coal, cyclone, and fluidized bed boilers. Specific topics considered include chlorine in one or more coals, alkali metals (e.g., K, Na) and alkali earth elements, and related topics. Coals of consideration include Appalachian, Interior Province, and Western bituminous coals; Powder River Basin (PRB) and other subbituminous coals; Fort Union and Gulf Coast lignites, and many of the off-shore coals (e.g., Adaro coal, an Indonesian subbituminous coal with very low sulfur; other off-shore coals from Germany, Poland, Australia, South Africa, Columbia, and more). Interactions between fuels and the potential for blends to be different from the parent coals will be a critical focus of this of the book. This is one stop source to solid fuel types and blending processes. It helps you to evaluate combustion systems and calculate their efficiency. It helps you to recognize the interactions between fuels and their potential energy output. It also helps you to be aware of the Environmental Aspects of Fuel Blending.
