Semi Pilot
Additional Technical Information:
Multi‐purpose reactor for bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) gasification, combustion and pyrolysis.
Capacity: 0.5 – 1 kg/h fuel (up to 5 kWth input).
Equipped with dual fuel feeding systems to be able to make fuel mixtures or supply additives.
Very flexible and reliable reactor which can be used for many types of research (pyrolysis, gasification and combustion using different biomass/waste feedstock and bed materials, kinetic measurements, agglomeration studies, effect of additives, calcination processes).
Temperatures up to 1100°C.
Possible fluidization gases: air, steam, oxygen, nitrogen, CO2.
Recently modified to allow simulation of grate firing conditions and study of deposit formation on heat exchangers.
