Modeling of SO3 Formation Process in Coal-fired Boilers

Curbing the blue plume: SO3 formation and mitigation

nisms of formation, it appears that SO3 may be produced by the following: (1) chemical reactions in fuel beds; {2) reaction in the flame between SO 2 and atomic oxygen; and (3) catalytic oxida-tion of SO2 by materials on the boiler surfaces. Reactions in Fuel Beds In stoker-fired boilers, some SO3 may be derived from decomposition of min-eral matter in coal.

boilers during exploitation, mathematical modeling is regularly used [1-17]. Since nitrogen oxides are identified as direct precursors of photochemical smog and contribute to acid rain, considerable efforts focus on modeling NOx formation/destruction in pulverized coal combustion [5-10, 12, 18, 19]. Although NOx emission from Serbian plants fir-

Prediction of Acid Dew Point in Flue Gas of Boilers

Mar 08, 2016 · The temperature of flue gas should be controlled to be higher than the acid dew point to avoid fouling and corrosion of heating surfaces in the second pass of boilers. Decreasing the temperature of flue gas in boilers is one of the most effective ways to improve thermal efficiency, enhance electrostatic precipitator efficiency, and decrease water consumption of the desulfurization …

Emissions of Sulfur Trioxide from Coal-Fired Power Plants

The formation of SO 3 will occur during the combus-tion of sulfur (S)-bearing fuels such as coal and heavy fuel oils. Virtually all of the SO 3 converts to H 2 SO 4 as flue gas is cooled in the air preheater (APH). Relatively high con-centrations of SO 3 /H 2 SO 4 in the boiler, stack, or plume can cause adverse impacts to plant equipment and

Mar 21, 2021 · Coal combustion, especially in the coal-fired boilers, is one of the main sources of SO 3 emissions (Ren et al. 2020). The migration and conversion process of SO 3 in coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) is shown in Fig. 1. It can be seen that when the temperature is lower than 500 °C, SO 3 will react with the water vapor to form gaseous H 2 SO 4.
