The amount of excess air that is required by a boiler depends on many factors, including the type of
burner, fuel, and combustion chamber. Well-designed pulverized coal boilers may operate with
complete combustion as slightly less than 15% excess air; i.e., 15% more than the theoretical air
calculated from the chemical equations. Other boilers may require 50% or even 100% excess air.
Use 50% excess air for safety purposes.

Actual Air Fuel Ratio


The weight of the air supplied for combustion is necessarily in excess of what is theoretically required.
The volumetric analysis of the dry flue gas can be used to calculate the actual weight of air.

Average Temperature Needed To Dry Of The Coal


From Power Plant Theory and Design by Philip Potter page 247
Air supplied to a stoker-fired furnace should not exceed 300 F or 350 F at the most; otherwise, stoker
war page and maintenance will be too high. Pulverized units can employ 500 F to nearly 700 F air if the
coal is wet.

Since pulverized coal is to be used,

FLYASH
Fly Ash To Be Collected Located Under The Precipitator
From Power Plant Engineering by Frederick Morse page 341.
For pulverized coal there is entrainment of 60-70% of the ash as Fly ash

Use 70% for safety purposes

Average Density Of Fly Ash


Fly ash density ranges from 1,000 1,400 kg/m3

Height Of The Fly Ash Silo For A Diameter Of 3m


Two bottom ash silos should be installed

Since the height of a single bottom ash silo is too high. It is recommended to use 3 silos to be collected
twice a day.

BOTTOM ASH
Bottom Ash To Be Collected Located Under The Boiler
Since 70% of the ash is the fly ash therefore the other 30% that will complete the total number of ash is
the bottom ash.

CONVEYOR

Speed = 150 m/min


No. of hours to fill the silo = 5 hours

Conveyor Capacity = (

m3 x 864.5 kg/m3 x 1ton/1000kg) / 5 hours

Conveyor Capacity = 132.87 tons / hour

Length of Conveyor:
L1 = L2 = 40 m

From PPE by Morse, Table 12-2:

Where
S = speed of Conveyor, m/min
b = width of belt, cm
Conveyor Capacity = capacity of conveyor, ton/hr

Solving for width of belt:


132.87 tons/hr= 0.000404(150m/min) b2

b = 46.82 cm

Solving for the Driveshaft Horsepower:


Re: P = [{(L + 45.72) /9000} {0.06KS + T}]

Where:
K = horsepower constant
T = capacity of conveyor, ton/hr
S = speed of conveyor
From PPE by Morse, Table 12-3:

K = 31.3
P = [{(40 + 45.72)/9000} {0.06(31.3)(150) + 132.87}]
P = 3.95 hp

Solving for the Tripper Horsepower:

b= 46.82 cm
THP = 1.03+0.0045T
THP = 1.03+0.0045(132.87)
THP = 1.63 hp

Belt type = 5 ply, 32 duck

Note: No. of plies provided by the table are for 4, 6 and 8 plies. Therefore interpolate the value of
Minimum Pulley diameter for a 5 ply belt.

Minimum Pulley Diameter = 76.2 cm

PUMP CALCULATION

Wp1 = (hb9-h9)(1-m2-m3-m4-m5) = (1 - 0.0089 - 0.0803 - 0.0619 - 0.0192)(361.2 359.8)(674.32)


= 783.29 KJ/s

Wp2 = (hb12-h12)(1-m2) = (1 - 0.0089)(836.5 825.5)(674.32)


= 6805.30 KJ/s

Assumption
TDH1 = 10 m
TDH2 = 20 m
Note: Specific Weight = 9.81 kN/m3
V1= 783.29 (kN-m)/s / (9.81 kN/m3 * 10m)
V1= 7.98 m3/s
V1=28744.98 m3/hr
V2 = 6805.30 (kN-m)/s / (9.81 kN/m3 * 20m)
V2 = 34.69 m3/s
V2 = 124867.89 m3/hr
