Chemical Reaction and Fluid Flow in a Carbon Monoxide Boiler(II) Chemical Reaction Analysis


Article Preview

Performance of a CO boiler has a detrimental influence on the operation and production of related industries. In this paper, the reacting flow in a Carbon Monoxide boiler is investigated. The influence of insertion of an ellipsoidal cone is discussed. It is found that insertion of an ellipsoidal cone can lower the temperature in the DeNOx section. There is a larger skin friction coefficient with a larger ellipsoidal cone angle. It is also found that NOx formation in the DeNOx section can be alleviated by insertion of an ellipsoidal cone.
