Abstract

Numerical investigations of an anti-corrosion design and the combustion process (original conditions and optimal conditions) were conducted for a 660 MW opposed wall fired boiler. In order to solve high-temperature corrosion of the side wall, a scheme was proposed: slotting in the side wall and introducing air (closing-to-wall air) from the secondary air. The effect of anti-corrosion was disclosed in detail by varying the structures of slotting, gas velocities from nozzles and jet inclination angles. The temperature and NOx distribution in the furnace at optimized conditions were compared with those at the original operating conditions. Simulation results showed that the structures of the slot and gas velocities from the nozzles had a marked effect on anti-corrosion of the side wall. When the gas velocity was 4 m/s, an inclination angle of the gas velocity was not conducive to anti-corrosion of the side wall. When the gas velocity increased at the middle and bottom of the side wall, the anti-corrosion effect increased significantly. When the optimal scheme was adopted, the corrosion area of the side wall decreased obviously, but the furnace temperature and the NOx emission increased slightly. The detailed results of this work promote a full understanding of closing-to-wall air and could help to reduce the corrosive area in pulverized-coal furnaces or boilers.
