Press Release

  • A 40MW biomass-fired CFB boiler in Strongoli, Italy was studied to determine engineered solutions to excessive erosion at multiple points in the CFB loop, including the cyclone inlet region, fluidized-bed heat exchanger, and suspension tube assembly downstream of the cyclone.
  • An FCC regenerator at a U.S. refinery was studied to determine the root cause of afterburning (temperature rise between the top of the bed and the cyclone inlets) that had been observed in the operating unit for its entire 70-year operating life to date. 
  • A 140MW coal-fired CFB furnace at a municipal power plant in Duisburg, Germany, was modeled to determine the impact of co-firing the unit with 25% biomass. 
  • A unique sorbent-based warm syngas clean-up system being developed for IGCC (Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle) applications was modeled, including both hydrodynamic effects and chemistry. 
  • Components of a refiner’s FCC reactor were modeled to determine the change in erosion performance from design changes proposed by the equipment licensor for reducing erosion in the inlet region of the reactor riser cyclones.
