Watertube Boiler Safety Based on Physics and Physical

Apr 14, 2020 · A benefit of a modular, once-through watertube design is the ability to rapidly generate full steam even from a cold start (on-demand steam). On-demand steam can improve steam generation operations by matching the actual load demand with boiler output in near real time. While traditional boilers typically are placed in a standby or idle mode when not in use, …

Fundamentals of Mercury Speciation and Control in Coal

Most researchers agree that mercury in coal vaporizes completely in the combustion zone of a boiler and leaves this zone in the form of Hg° in the gas phase. Some oxidation of Hg° may occur as the flue gas cools. At the economizer exit, where the flue gas typically enters the APCS, mercury can be found as Hg° or Hg2+.
