Conversion and Fouling

Performer: NETL Office of Research and Development

Project No: FWP-2012.03.03 Task 3

Project Description

The objective for this NETL in-house conversion and fouling project is to improve the reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) of gasification plants by providing tools that can be used to evaluate the impact that fuel properties have on slag and refractory interaction, and to reduce plugging and fouling throughout the syngas cooling system. Utilizing these tools will aid in minimizing plugging and fouling–increasing overall plant efficiency due to improved heat transfer in heat exchangers.
