CO & O₂ Combustion Monitor

Accurate and reliable CO measurement is key to improving combustion.  The Delta system provides data for continuous combustion tuning and optimization allowing plants to operate closer to ideal fuel to air ratios without unit damage resulting in the following benefits:

  • Reduced NOx emissions
  • Improved heat-rate or fuel efficiency
  • Reduced FEGT and slagging
  • Improved reliability and availability, reduce de-rates
  • Decrease in water-wall wastage and tube leaks
  • Reduction of LOI

Dry extractive O2 measurement ensures boiler operation in the optimized combustion zone.  Delta Measurement’s dry extractive O2 measurement probes utilize an in-line Zirconium Oxide sensor and can continuously measure O2 in furnace areas where conventional O2 probes cannot.

CoalTreat®

CoalTreat® boiler slag mitigation additive is applied to the fuel pre-combustionCoalTreat® is EES’ fuel chemistry innovation that has proven to be highly effective in mitigating problems attributed to furnace slagging and heat transfer surface fouling in coal-fired utility and industrial boilers.

CoalTreat® is applied to the fuel pre-combustion, customized to each plant’s fuels and specific objectives, and has been successfully deployed on several large fleet coal-fired units around the world for many years.

Key Benefits of CoalTreat®

  • Greater fuel flexibility to burn opportunity fuels for economic & regulatory benefit
  • Increased heat rate (efficiency) with improved heat transfer and reduced boiler exit gas temperature
  • Improved soot-blower performance and reduced forced outages (slag and tube wastage related outages)
  • Improved MW output through reducing or eliminating high load de-rating

Simulating Coal Blending with Advanced Chemistry

Furnace slagging and heat transfer fouling are common problems encountered by power plants using bituminous coals (ILB, NAPP, etc.) with high iron and sulfur content and high levels of sodium and potassium (alkalis).  Molten alkalis promote ash buildup in upper furnace sections, and molten iron form large deposits in the burner area.  For subbituminous coals such as PRB, high levels of silica, alumina and calcium promote the formation of black glass deposits which reduce heat transfer in the upper furnace.  These slagging and fouling issues are more pronounced as more low rank, high sulfur, and higher ash coals with lower heating values become opportunity fuels. CoalTreat® customized fuel chemistry effectively mitigates these issues.   Applied “on-belt” as a pre-combustion fuel additive, CoalTreat reagents react during combustion through chemical and physical mechanisms to alter ash chemistry and eliminate deposits.

CoalTreat® On Demand

CoalTreat On Demand is an innovative portable delivery system for our proven anti-slagging additives.  The system provides on demand CoalTreat delivery to eliminate slag issues during high risk operating periods.  The modular design provides rapid deployment of single or multiple units depending on coal types. CoalTreat may be deployed when internal boiler slagging, fouling, corrosion, and undesirable emissions are a problem. The On Demand system provides delivery of single or multiple CoalTreat additives in a fully PLC controlled ISO Tank Container system with pumps, tank agitation, insulation and heat tracing as depicted in the drawing below.

The new modular design is just part of our investment in innovative CoalTreat technologies for coal-fired facilities that desire better performance with the option for on-demand treatment.
