Agglomeration, Fluidised bed, Fouling, Sulphur capture


In fluidized bed, low-grade and waste materials are used for combustion. These fuels have high alkali, sulphur and toxic elements which on combustion produces deposition and corrosion in the system. The major problem associated with fluidized bed system is agglomeration. Fuel, ash and bed particles stick together to form bulk mass which reduces fluidization and finally shutdown the system. In this study discussion made on factors affects fluidization, combustion efficiency and emission. Identification and control techniques of agglomeration and difficulties involved in bed sulphur capture are also analyzed.
