Abstract

In this preliminary study we apply Ultrasound Velocity Profiling (UVP) for obtaining velocity data inside black liquor nozzles. We demonstrate the capability of this technique for measuring flow properties and viscosity behavior of the black liquor online. The experiments were carried out on an operating recovery boiler where the black liquor from pulping softwood was taken directly from the boiler liquor system and sprayed through a customized splashplate nozzle.
