The combustion of pulverized peat has been examined in
the drop tube furnace by using air as the atmosphere.
There is a great lack in the measurement data for peat
and other biomass fuels compared with coal in a
prescribed atmosphere. The results can be used to compare
the combustion behaviour of peat with that of coal by
using the results for coal. This can give information
about the suitable particle size of peat in order to
obtain a similar combustion behaviour in a furnace, when
coal is replaced by peat. The measurement data are also
valuable for the modelling work.
There is need for experimental data for pulverized
biomass fuels in an inert atmosphere. Biomass fuels have
a great fraction of volatile matter, and the results are
required for the modelling of pyrolysis.
