The system is equipped with a moving grate fitted with watercooled grate supports, which ensure that the temperature of the grate is kept at a constant level. This prevents the build-up of slag on the grates. The walls of the step grate are also watercooled to further ensure a constant combustion temperature as well as a minimal heating loss.
The steam boiler is an all-welded flue gas tube boiler of the 5-pass type with an open bottom. The two upper flue gas passes can be by-passed at lower loads in order to avoid flue gas condensation at low boiler loads. The low flue gas temperature throughout the operating range as well as a good combustion quality with a low air surplus ensures a very high thermal efficiency.
The modulating control system with complete SCADA system means that all parameters are automatically adjusted according to the current load of the boiler and the system is operating continuously at varying loads.
