Fuel Mass flow Measurement for Coal and biomass fired boilers

Sponsored by: PROMECON process measurement control GmbH

Focused on:

  • Fuel Mass Flow Measurement

Date: 17 March


Time: 2PM London/10AM New York

How to lower NOx and improve efficiency

Today´s typical fuel distribution problems will be shown in several examples of large boilers and they will be discussed in depth:
- Root cause for NOx problems
- Problems with O2 balance
- Problems with slagging, and pipe leaks
- Problems with CO and unburned carbon
- Causes for heat maldistribution in boilers
- The analysis of the milling plant in terms of correct calibration and flow problems
- Technologies to measure PF mass flow online
- Technologies to measure primary air flow (and secondary air flow) online
- A new technology to apply the coal mass flow measurement for an enhanced feeder control of the mill. How to create new feeder demand and PA demand signals that will optimize the operation of our mills
- Typical calculations on savings on a typical 600 MW boiler:
Savings in fan power
Savings in coal
Savings in ammonia
Savings in tube leaks and mill trips (lost generation)
Savings in maintenance (wear)

If you are on this planet and are running a coal or biomass PF fired boiler, then we will discuss problems that are not new to you. This will be an insight for all operations managers, operators, efficiency and boiler engineers, I&C and controls specialists who are dealing with operating large steam generators for steam or electricity production.

PROMECON has looked at more of these specific and very special problems than any other company in the market. We have seen it all.

Don´t miss the opportunity to listen to our condensed experience from hundreds of clients over the past 25 years and ask your questions about your problems at your plant.
