Oxy-fuel combustion is the process of burning a fuel using pure oxygen, or a mixture of oxygen and fuel gas, instead of air. Since the nitrogen component of air is not heated, fuel consumption is reduced, and higher flame temperatures are possible.Get A Quote
The energy efficiency of a conventional thermal power station is defined as saleable energy produced as a percent of the heating value of the fuel consumed. A simple cycle gas turbine achieves energy conversion efficiencies from 20 to 35%. Typical coal-based power plants operating at steam pressures of 170 bar and 570 °C run at efficiency of 35 to 38%, with state-of-the-art fossil fuel plantsGet A Quote
Typical modern boilers will fire natural gas as the primary fuel, with a percentage of these using #2 fuel oil as a backup fuel. A system designer should be aware of a couple of key points when in-volved with boiler fuel oil systems. 1) Most boilers firing fuel oil will have their own fuel oil pump.Get A Quote
Conventional biomass pellet production (Fig. 12.4) includes an initial size reduction to a 2-in. particle, followed by drying to 10–12% moisture content (wet basis) using a rotary drier. The dried biomass is then passed through a second-stage grinding process to reduce the particle size to less than 3/16-in., steam conditioned, and pelletized ( Tumuluru et al., 2010, 2011; Tumuluru, 2014 ).Get A Quote
