Properties and Pulverized Coal Combustion of Low-Reactivity Fuels. Part II. Furnace and Burner Equipment1

  • A. N. AlekhnovichEmail author

In case of the low volatile content and low heat of combustion of the volatile matter, external factors play a more important role in stabilization of the flame, than in the case of reactive coals. The paper offers a review of solutions for improving the design of the swirl burners, their arrangement and furnace layout.
