Study on Swirl Composite Fluidization Mode with Circulating Fluidized Beds for Flue Gas Desulfurization
Circulating Fluidization Bed (CFB) for Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) is widely used. But its desulfurization efficiency is lower than Wet FGD. Its investment is not much lower than Wet FGD. Flow field of CFB for FGD is hard to be uniform. Swirl Composite Fluidization Mode (SCFM) was brought forward compared to Venturi Fluidization Mode (VFM). Experiment and simulation under cold condition was proceeded. From the test, flow field along axis and in cross-sections for SCFM are uniform. Turbulent velocity fluctuation is violent. And particles concentration is high. SCFM has better flow effect than VFM. Uniformity increases with higher superficial velocity and more tangential swirl devices. Recommended tangential swirl devices number is between 3-6. SCFM technology has good foreground.
