fluidized bed technology

im currently working this one in my master's degree.. i let you know about my findings when i'll finish this.. as of now, i'm open to any suggestions or comments.. also, i need more references, materials and books, even journals that would deepen my understanding on this research..

What kind of waste were you planning on using? It seems pretty feaible to have a massive fan and gravity fed hoppers as a means of fuelling a large static furnace, if you got a good mix with the material you could burn extremely hot and extremely clean...

i will be using common waste here in our locality.. since we're rice eaters here.. i'm planning to use rice hulls..
That sounds like a pretty good material to use, if they're well dried they'd be usable as is, an old blower fan for factory ventilation would probably be usable if you ran it on a shaft and put the motor out of the heat...

yeah.. even it has as much as 40 - 50% moisture content, fluidized bed combustor can still burn it, according to some literatures on other waste.. but of course the combustion efficiency is not that good..
I was thinking more in terms of the dynamics, they'd burn better for sure but they'd also move better dry, rather than having to be ground up any... The only issue about them is you may need to have a pilot fire to keep things going, I'm not sure it depends on how well the husks burn...

yeah.. that might also another option.. but i think there will be some sort of pre-burner for the fluidizing gas, so that it will be heated up to a higher temperature in such a way that it will reach the ignition temperature of the rice hulls..
Maybe a starter burner would be needed but you could reroute some of the gas after it's reached sustainable temperatures to save the extra complexity, if it's planned to be a constantly running machine then a little extra awkwardness in starting would be acceptable...

yeah that's right.. i was out of town again.. im back now.. kip in touch bro.. i might have some questions for you soon..
Ask away, I'm planning a few experiments with this kind of stuff...

wow that's nice.. myb we can exchange some ideas and thoughts soon..
