Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Kraft Recovery Boilers, Third Edition includes 16 chapters covering various aspects of recovery boiler technology from chemical principles to black liquor properties, sprays, combustion, char bed characteristics and air delivery. In the Table of Contents, you can see the breadth and depth of operating issues that the eight authors cover.

For example, the book dedicates an entire chapter to the char bed process, one of the least understood parts of the overall process. The char bed plays a central role in the stable, efficient and safe operation of the recovery boiler. In the chapter, authors Thomas M. Grace and Honghi Tran review what is known about the processes and provide some insight into the physical and chemical behavior of the char bed.

They explore the char bed composition, shape and structure; the chemical reactions in char beds; the heat transfer in char beds; smelt transformation and transport; floor tube integrity; char bed modeling, and the cooling of char beds. 

Tran, also the book’s editor, recently participated in an interview as part of the TAPPI Press Virtual Book Launch Party. Watch the interview to hear what he had to say about Kraft Recovery Boilers, Third Edition.
