Other Radiative Exits of A Furnace

Platen Superheater • Platen Superheater : Flat panels of tubes located in the upper part of the furnace, where the gas temperature is high. • The tubes of the platen SH receive very high radiation as well as a heavy dust burden. • Mechanism of HT : High Radiation & Low convection • Thermal Structure: – No. of platens – No. of tubes in a platen – Dia of a tube – Length of a tube

Geometry of Thermal Structure : Platen SH • • The outer diameter of platen SH is in the range of 32 – 42 mm. The platens are usually widely spaced, S 1 = 500 – 900 mm. The tubes within a platen are closely spaced, S 2/d = 1. 1. The number of parallel tubes in a platen is in the range of 15 – 35. • Design Problem: To find out – Length of tubes. – Number of PSHs. • Design Constraints: Max. allowable steam flow rates.

Thermal Balance Equation for Platen SH • Energy given out by flue gas: • Energy absorption for a Platen SH: The radiative heat coming from the furnace may not be completely absorbed by PSH. The gas in PSH tube matrix radiates some heat out to next section.

• Radiation coming from furnace • Radiation lost from PSH • b is the width of PSH. • Radiation energy emitted by gas in tube space.

Convection Heat Transfer in PSH • The convective heat lost by flue gas • Overall Coefficient of Heat Transfer,

Ash Deposition Coefficient 1. non-slagging coal, 2. Medium Slagging Coal with soot blowing, 3. Medium slagging coal without soot blowing, 4. Combustible shale.
