Title: Westinghouse hot gas filter system development

Integrated Gasification Combined Cycles (IGCC) and Pressurized Fluidized Bed Combustion (PFBC) are being developed and demonstrated for commercial, power generation application. Hot gas particulate filters are key components for the successful implementation of IGCC and PFBC in power generation gas turbine cycles. The objective of this work is to develop and qualify through analysis and testing a practical hot gas ceramic barrier filter system that meets the performance and operational requirements for these applications. This paper reports on the development and status of testing of the Westinghouse Advanced Hot Gas Particle Filter (W-APF) including: 4,246 hours of testing that has now been completed at the Foster Wheeler 10 MW PCFB facility located in Karhula, Finland; operation of the W-APF in conjunction with the Foster Wheeler Advanced HIPPS Test Program being conducted at their Livingston, New Jersey site; approximately 2,100 hours of operation of the W-APF at the SCS/PSDF site on the MWK transport reactor test loop; the design, installation and startup status of the W-APF unit supplied to the 95 MW Pinon Pine IGCC Clean Coal Demonstration, Reno, Nevada; and the status of the Westinghouse development and testing of HGF`s for Biomass Power Generation. Results reported include operating history, operatingmore » characteristics and filter performance. Schedules and objectives for future testing are summarized. The status of the 200 MWe PCFB Clean Coal Demonstration Project, City of Lakeland Florida and 75 MW(e) Minnesota Agriculture Biomass Power Project are summarized.« less
