Results from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling can be used in a wide range of applications.

This article shows how recovery boiler operational factors such as liquor spray distribution, air jet penetration, gas velocity and furnace temperature can be modeled to determine potential upgrades for optimal boiler performance.

Upgrades to Existing Wet FGD Systems

Upgrades to Existing Wet FGD Systems to Improve Performance, Reduce Operating and Maintenance Costs and Improve Reliability

Upgrading an existing wet FGD system may be an effective way to

  • improve SO2 removal,
  • allow the use of lower cost higher sulfur coals,
  • reduce power consumption,
  • allow for the use of an alternate, lower-cost reagent,
  • and improve the reliability of the system while reducing the operating and maintenance costs.
