The report gives results of field measurements made on a 90,000 lb/hr vibrating-grate-stoker boiler. The effect of various parameters on boiler emissions and efficiency was studied. Parameters included overfire air, excess air, boiler load, and fuel properties. Measurements included gaseous emissions, particulate emissions, particle size distribution of the flyash, and combustible content of the ash. Gaseous emissions measured were O2, CO2, CO, NO, SO2, and SO3 in the flue gas. Sample locations included the boiler outlet and the multiclone dust collecter outlet. In addition to test results and observations, the report describes the facility tested, coals fired, test equipment, and procedures.
