Abstract:

A new approach to burning coal in industrial-size boilers without being constrained by the sulfur content of the fuel was investigated. Coal combustion with the injection of a lime sulfur sorbent was evaluated using an equilibrium combustion computer program. Subsequent experimental work with a flame tube apparatus demonstrated that lime does react effectively with hydrogen sulfide in a low temperature, fuel-rich flame. Applications for this approach include both existing boilers designated for other fuels and new boilers designed for coal firing. Author
