Abstract

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.
