Bed agglomeration during biomass fast pyrolysis in a fluidised bed reactor
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the previously-unreported phenomenon of bed agglomeration during biomass fast pyrolysis in fluidised bed. Experimental work was carried out to characterise bed agglomerates formed. The differences in bed agglomeration behaviour were also identified among the fast pyrolysis of various mallee biomass components (wood, leaf and bark). A new parameter (sand loading) has also been developed for diagnosing bed agglomeration during biomass fast pyrolysis in fluidised bed under a wide range of conditions.

Quantification of Interactions between Sand and Pyrolyzing Biomass Particles in Fluidized-Bed under Fast Pyrolysis Conditions Pertinent to Bio-Oil ProductionBurton, A.; Wu, Hongwei (2015)This paper deals with quantification of the interactions between the sand particles and the pyrolyzing biomass particles that are thermally thin (Biot Number < 0.1) to form bed agglomerates in a fluidized-bed reactor ...
Mechanistic Investigation into Bed Agglomeration during Biomass Fast Pyrolysis in a Fluidized-Bed ReactorBurton, A.; Wu, Hongwei (2012)This paper demonstrates that during the pyrolysis of mallee leaf (355-500 µm) in a fluidized-bed reactor (bed materials: silica sand, 125-355 µm) at 300-700 °C, bed agglomeration takes place due to the formation of char-char ...
