Thanks to Mom for being a mother and a father, a breadwinner, friend, teacher, role model and travel companion for life. Her unswerving faith in my potential to leave the world a better place has driven me to want to make my privileges, largely the result of her hard work, accessible to people beyond my ken.
Most reboilers are of the shell and tube heat exchanger type and normally steam is used as the heat source in such reboilers. However, other heat transfer fluids like hot oil or Dowtherm TM may be used. Fuel-fired furnaces may also be used as reboilers in some cases. Kettle reboilers Image 1 are very simple and reliable. They may require pumping of the column bottoms liquid into the kettle, or there may be sufficient liquid head to deliver the liquid into the reboiler.
In the smelt water explosion even a few liters of water, when mixed with molten smelt can violently turn to steam in few tenths of a second. Char bed and water can coexist as steam blanketing reduces heat transfer. Some trigger event destroys the balance and water is evaporated quickly through direct contact with smelt. This sudden evaporation causes increase of volume and a pressure wave of some 10 — Pa. The force is usually sufficient to cause all furnace walls to bend out of shape.
Safety of equipment and personnel requires an immediate shutdown of the recovery boiler if there is a possibility that water has entered the furnace. All recovery boilers have to be equipped with special automatic shutdown sequence. The other type of explosions is the combustible gases explosion.
For this to happen the fuel and the air have to be mixed before the ignition. Typical conditions are either a blackout loss of flame without purge of furnace or continuous operation in a substoichiometric state.
To detect blackout flame monitoring devices are installed, with subsequent interlocked purge and startup. As also continuous O 2 monitoring is practiced in virtually every boiler the noncombustible gas explosions have become very rare.
The modern recovery boiler is of a single drum design, with vertical steam generating bank and wide spaced superheaters. The construction of the vertical steam generating bank is similar to the vertical economizer. Vertical boiler bank is easy to keep clean. Wide spacing in superheaters helps to minimize fouling. This arrangement, in combination with sweetwater attemperators, ensures maximum protection against corrosion.
There have been numerous improvements in recovery boiler materials to limit corrosion. The effect of increasing dry solids concentration has had a significant effect on the main operating variables. The steam flow increases with increasing black liquor dry solids content. Increasing closure of the pulp mill means that less heat per unit of black liquor dry solids will be available in the furnace.
The flue gas heat loss will decrease as the flue gas flow diminishes. Increasing black liquor dry solids is especially helpful since the recovery boiler capacity is often limited by the flue gas flow. A modern recovery boiler consists of heat transfer surfaces made of steel tube; furnace-1, superheaters-2, boiler generating bank-3 and economizers The steam drum-5 design is of single-drum type.
The air and black liquor are introduced through primary and secondary air ports-6, liquor guns-7 and tertiary air ports The combustion residue, smelt exits through smelt spouts-9 to the dissolving tank The nominal furnace loading has increased during the last ten years and will continue to increase. The average flue gas flow decreases as less water vapor is present.
So the vertical flue gas velocities can be reduced even with increasing temperatures in lower furnace. The most marked change has been the adoption of single drum construction. This change has been partly affected by the more reliable water quality control. Kim, J.
