The aim of this project was to investigate the effect of the design and operating changes necessary to achieve low SO(2) and NO(x) levels on metal wastage of the heat transfer tubes of fluidised bed combustors. This investigation has been carried out on both hot and cold test rigs. Data have also been obtained from a 1.8 MW boiler operating under commercial conditions. The results of the test programme are given in this report. A number of methods are suggested for the more difficult problem of control in large boilers, with larger bed areas.
