Title: Kraft black liquor delivery systems. Final report

Abstract

An improved spray nozzle for black liquor injection into kraft recovery boilers has been sought which is expected to result in obtaining a controlled, well-defined droplet size distribution. An environmentally sound experimental spray facility capable of delivering black liquor at normal firing temperatures has been operated at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology to help achieve that goal. Previous work showed that black liquor sprays have a characteristic size distribution which is determined by the fluid mechanical forces breaking up the spray sheet issuing from the nozzle. Recent work has centered on applying vibratory assist as an independently-controlled force on the sheet breakup process in an attempt to change the drop size distribution. Results are presented which feature vibratory assist applied in the axial direction.
