Erosion Failure Analysis of CFBC Boiler
Author(s): Piyushkumar B. Chaudhari, V.H. Patil, C.R. Patil
Abstract: This work is concerned about erosion failure analysis of CFBC boiler, in which gas–solid two-phase mixtures flowing upwards through the fast beds. We know that boilers are used for steam generators in power plants as well as in process industries. Failure of tube leads is huge loss in terms of production, so in this paper we analyze main causes of erosion in CFBC boiler. Erosion mainly caused due to improper design of boiler, improper erection, Misoperation, and due to poor maintenance. Using CFD we can predict fluid flows inside the furnace.
