30 April 20153 Fuel oil System Purpose: (a) to establish initial boiler light up. (b) to support the furnace flame during low load operation. Fuel oil system Consists of Fuel oil Pumps Oil heaters Filters Steam tracing lines Objective is to get filtered oil at correct pressure and temperature
30 April 20154 Atomization Atomization breaks the fuel into fine particles that readily mixes with the air for combustion. Oil should be divided up into small particles for effective atomization. The advantages of atomization are: a) Atomizing burners can be used with heavier grades of oil. b) Can be adopted to large applications because of large capacity range. c) Complete combustion is assured by the ability of the small particles to penetrate turbulent combustion.
30 April 20155 Classification: Oil burners Oil burners are classified according to the method used for atomization, as follows: a) Air-atomized burners b) Steam-atomized burners c) Mechanically atomized burners Air atomizing system are not recommended for heavy oil system as they tend to chill the oil and decrease atomization quality
30 April 20156 Steam Atomization This System uses auxiliary steam to assist in the atomization of the oil. The steam used in this method should be slightly superheated and free cf moisture. As in the air atomizing system, the steam used for atomizing as well as heating the fuel as it pass through the tip and into the furnace. The main advantages of steam atomizing burners over other are: a) Simplicity of its design b) Initial cost of installation is low c) low pumping pressure d) low preheating temperature. Disadvantage is steam used in atomizing process
30 April 20157 Oil Burners The types of oil used in the oil burners are: a) Light Diesel Oil b) Heavyfuel oil c) Low sulpher heavy stock (LSHS). Heavy oil guns are used for stabilizing flame at low load carrying. Warm up oil guns are used for cold boiler warm up during cold start up and ignitor are used for start up and oil flame stabilizing.
30 April 20158 Oil Guns The guns used in this system have two main components for atomization. They are: a) Mixing plate b) Spray Plate.

30 April 201527 Role of Mills Produces Pulverized coal 80% of which passes through 200 mesh Air mixed with Pulverized coal (PF) is carried to the coal nozzle in the wind box assembly. PF from coal nozzle is directed towards the centre of boiler burning zone Pre-heated secondary air enters boiler and surrounds the PF and help in combustion
30 April 201528 Why Pulverized Fuel? The economic motives for the introduction and development of pulverized fuel firing are: i) Efficient utilization of cheaper low grade coals. ii) Flexibility in firing with ability to meet fluctuating loads. iii) Elimination of breaking losses. iv) Better response to automatic control. v) Ability to use high combustion air temperature; increasing the overall efficiency of boiler. vi) High availability.
30 April 201529 Mill Dampers and air system PF temperature to be maintained 90 0 C All Shut off valves are required to be kept wide open during operation Mill bearing is to be kept clean and no dust should enter Low Primary air flow will cause unstable flame and high flow result in high mill reject
30 April 201531 Firing System Direct Firing System: Coal is fed to the mill at controlled quantity. Hot air (temperature controlled) is permitted to flow through the mill. The air dries the coal and picks up the milled product and flows through the classifier rejecting higher size particle. The fine coal is carried through the coal burner to the combustion chamber. Indirect Firing System: Mills are operated independent of boiler loading and pulverised coal is stored in the intermediate bunker. From the bunker it is taken to combustion chamber with the help of primary air fan. Boiler loading is controlled by the amount of pulverised fuel fed to boiler.
30 April 201534 Coal Burners Coal burners comprise of coal nozzle, steel tip, seal plate and tilting link mechanism. Housed in coal compartment in all four corners of the furnace and connected with coal pipes. One end (outlet) is rectangular and another end is cylindrical. The burner can be tilted on a pivot pin. The nozzle tip has separate coal and air passages. Coal and air passages is divided into sevaral parts
30 April 201535 Methods of Fuel Firing Vertical Firing : A number of rectangular fan shaped nozzles are set across the width of the furnace in an arch. Pulverised fuel mixture ignites under the arch and is directed vertically downwards to the bottom of the furnace where the gases are made to turn upwards to pass through the combustion chamber this gives a long path to the flame and is particularly suitable for coals of low volatile content. Horizontal Firing: Horizontal firing with the turbulent type of burner are set up usually in the front (front wall fired) or rear walls of the furnace. Burner consists of an inner cone for primary air and fuel which is given a rotary motion as it passes through the burner. Impact Firing : This is the arrangement with the type of burner used with slag tap furnaces where the ash is kept in a molten state on the furnace floor and tapped off as and when necessary. Corner or tangential Firing: Burners are set at each corner of the furnace and are directed to strike the outside of an imaginary circle in the centre of the furnace.
