Description Paper from the AFRC 2013 conference titled Solid Fuel to Natural Gas Conversions for Existing Boiler Applications by William Gurski
Abstract Recent discoveries of vast natural gas reserves in the United States have resulted in increased production Natural Gas, resulting in lower prices. Petrochemical facilities are performing solid fuel conversions on their boilers to natural gas as a cost-effective and efficient fuel solution. Natural Gas is not only economically beneficial but also environmentally efficient with cheaper prices and reduced SO2, NOx, and CO2 emissions. As more facilities consider boiler fuel conversions, it is important to understand all facets of the conversion, from the thermal evaluation of the boiler, to the complete design, supply and installation of the new firing system. Zeeco will provide specific details and recommended practices from a recent Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boiler fuel conversion application designed for 1.4 billion Btu/hr of heat input for the maximum continuous steam rating. We will review thermal performance results, design and supply of the complete new gas firing system, and installation conversion assistance for the boiler modifications and firing system installation details.
