Global Thermal Coal Attributes

2020-10-21 · In addition to impacting efficiency by accumulating on boiler heat transfer surfaces, coal ash also affects maintenance requirements for those components (due to corrosion and erosion) and reduce plant reliability. Specific plant cost and operating parameters that are impacted by coal properties include: 1.

Coal to Gas Conversion — Reaction Engineering …

Typical coal to gas conversion candidates are old sub-critical units with smaller that 300 MW capacity and those with little or no air quality control systems in place. Most of these units are located in the eastern US, burning bituminous coals. Conversion (rather than repowering) allows the option of converting back to solid fuel in the future.

Coal to Ash Calculation (Volume)

 · Clinkers occur in small stoves used for heating a home and in giant commercial/industrial boilers. Clinkers, also known as slag, consist of the noncombustible elements and minerals found in coal that melt and fuse together as lumpy ashes from coal combustion. Boiler operators consider clinkers to be miserable stuff."

Summary. Modeling coal conversion processes is a very complex topic. The main conversion steps of pyrolysis and char consumption are characterized by numerous phenomena, which have to be addressed by coal conversion models. Often, these models focus on one conversion step, describing either coal pyrolysis or char consumption.
