The burner is obviously a critical element to combustion performance. ASC has modeled and tested a wide variety of burners for OEMs and plants.

CFD modeling or scale lab modeling can be used with the goals as follows:

  • Uniform, controlled-air velocity at burner discharge
  • Balanced coal flow to coal nozzles
  • Minimize erosion wear of components
  • Provide for individual burner flow measurements
  • Confirm flow control and swirl patterns of dampers

Due to confidentiality agreements with burner manufacturers, no detailed CFD or lab images are available.
