Poniżej zamieszczamy streszczenie artykułu:

During the combustion of solid fuels, the undesired effects of ash transformation include bed agglomeration, slagging, and fouling processes. In particular, a problematic consequence of bed agglomeration is the defluidization process, resulting from the disappearance of gaseous bubbles that are created behind air distributors. Different solutions can be applied against the agglomeration process. One possible method is to apply some additives that influence the ash behavior, thus inhibiting the agglomeration process. This paper presents the results of investigations into ash-related issues in a laboratory-scale bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) reactor. In particular, the impact of additives (kaolin, halloysite, fly ash, and the residuals from wet desulfurization system (IMOS)) on bed agglomeration was investigated. It was found that the addition of these compounds increased the defluidization time from ∼109 min (without additive) to ∼285 min in the BFB (with the addition of 0.1 g/min of kaolin). The morphology of additive (kaolin and halloysite) transformation after their addition into the combustion chamber was discussed. Another interesting phenomenon is that residuals from the IMOS exhibited the ability to be an additive against the agglomeration process. The defluidization time can be also significantly increased by the simultaneous application of the additive and the control of fluidization air velocity. The procedure of periodical bed moving by impulse primary air feeding against defluidization (PADM) is suggested and discussed. The PADM procedure resulted in a 36% reduction of additive, thus reducing the cost of measures against ash-related issues.
