FLUIDISATION AND PNEUMATIC CONVEYING OF POWER STATION FLY ASH.

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The main purpose of this paper is to present major research findings resulting from investigations into characterising fly ash for the purpose of predicting pneumatic transport behaviour and relative flow performance. Product conveying characteristics and fluidisation results are obtained for fly ash samples collected from five power stations incorporating both fabric filter and electrostatic precipitation dust collection systems. Experiments show that all materials performed equally well with the minor exception of the Group C powders which produced slightly higher pressure drops and flow irregularities. Generally, the fly ash samples investigated in this paper were found to be 'good' dense phase materials displaying a wide rangeability of conveying parameters and are expected to be feasible candidates for long distance transport.
