Performance of natural gas cofiring on a coal-fired

Tightening environmental regulations create special challenges with coal fired stoker boilers where the moving bed firing configuration greatly limits operational flexibility. For stokers, gas cofiring is an efficient way to achieve compliance, enhance performance and treat operational problems. Firing from 5 to 30% of total heat input through side-wall gas burners offers a …
