Experimental Research on Combustion Characteristics of Palm Kernel Meal in a Circulating Fluidized Bed
In this paper, the combustion characteristics of palm kernel meal were investigated in a circulating fluidized bed (CFB 100)(height=3000mm, inner diameter=100mm). The results showed that the temperature and pressure of the furnace were relatively steady. The contents of SiO2, Na2O and K2O of the bed material ranged smoothly with the process, the particle size of the bed material fluctuated slightly. The alkali metal contents of bed material were ranged from 1.5% to 3.5%.
