A Technology To Mitigate Syngas Cooler Fouling - Phase II

Performer: Reaction Engineering International

Project No: SC0004499

Project Description

While fouling of the syngas cooler probably cannot be completely eliminated, it can be better managed. REI is pursuing mitigation technologies that include (a) periodic in situ tube cleaning with targeted soot blowing and (b) surface coatings that inhibit buildup of deposit material and provide easier removal of deposits. These technologies are being tailored for the conditions that exist in the convective syngas cooler used at coal gasification plants. The project team will acquire a new and improved understanding of the mechanisms governing fouling to form the basis for mitigation technologies.
