Optimizing CFB Performance with Temperature Sensors

Temp-Pro specializes in supplying thermocouple solutions for critical areas in Circulating Fluidized Beds or CFBs, such as the furnace in-bed and cyclone inlet.

As the demand for energy increases, power generation companies must keep up while also adhering to regulatory standards and industry best practices. Temperature measurement devices play a critical role in ensuring the proper operation of power generation facilities, including circulating fluidized beds (CFBs).

Temp-Pro excels in providing thermocouple solutions for multiple OEM manufacturers of CFBs. CFBs are a type of combustion technology used in power generation that allows for greater fuel flexibility and reduced emissions. Accurate temperature measurements are essential for maintaining the proper operation of a CFB, particularly in the furnace in-bed and cyclone inlet.

Temp-Pro offers a wide range of thermocouple sensors, transmitters, junction boxes, and protection tubes for various applications within the CFB. For example, Type K thermocouples from Temp-Pro are used in two critical locations within a power generation plant’s CFB: the furnace in-bed and cyclone inlet.

Type K Thermocouples for Furnace In-Bed and Cyclone Inlet Temperature Measurement

Type K thermocouples are highly durable, making them ideal for use in the harsh environment of the furnace in-bed. Temperatures in this location can reach up to 1,200°C, and accurate temperature measurements are essential for maintaining proper combustion rates and fluidization. This dual, ungrounded thermocouple is specifically designed to withstand these extreme temperatures, making it an ideal choice for this application. The assembly includes a Thermowell which comprises of a 310 stainless steel sheath with 253ma special machined bar stock tip.Thermocouple Type K

In the cyclone inlet of the CFB, accurate temperature measurement is essential for ensuring that the cyclone is operating efficiently and that particles are being properly separated from the gas stream. Temp-Pro’s specially designed thermocouples can provide accurate temperature readings in this location, even in the presence of high-velocity gas flows and other environmental factors.

Overall, the use of Type K thermocouples in the furnace in-bed and cyclone inlet of a power generation plant’s CFB is critical for maintaining plant performance and preventing downtime. Their resistance to corrosion, dual-element design, and ability to withstand high temperatures make them an ideal choice for use in the furnace in-bed and cyclone inlet of circulating fluidized beds.
