Optical and momentum probe measurements in a CFB boiler
Paper in proceedings, 1996
Methods for the characterization of the two-phase flow in the transport zone of circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers are discussed based on measurements of fluctuations in local solids concentration and momentum flux using an optimum probe and a momentum probe. Both probes were designed to withstand the environment inside a furnace during combustion. The dynamic information on the flow obtained by the two probes was in agreement. The time-resolved measurements in the core region as well as in the wall layer by continuous increases and decreases in solids concentration and momentum flow from a base level at low solids concentration.
