Mitigation of Syngas Cooler Plugging and Fouling
Performer: Reaction Engineering International
Project No: FE0007952
Program Background and Project Benefits
This REI project is focused on developing a better understanding of syngas cooler plugging and fouling principles, in order to formulate concepts for mitigation of these problems to improve gasification plant availability and reliability. Improvements in availability and reliability of the syngas cooler would directly reduce the cost of electricity in integrated gasification combined cycle plants and costs of other products from syngas. Specifically, REI is conducting experiments and CFD modeling to develop designs for deposit removal, with the most promising concepts to be validated during field testing.
