Study of the Reaction Front Thickness in a Biomass Fixed-Bed Combustor

D. Patiño, D. Copena, J.C. Moran & E. Granada
The aim of this work is to analyze the behaviour of the reaction front thickness in a biomass combustor depending on the air mass flow rate. With this purpose, some modifications are introduced in a real fixed-bed combustor to continuously measure the depth of the bed’s surface. This new device coupled with the thermocouples used to measure the pass of the different fronts will allow us to record the thickness’ evolution of the drying, devolatilisation...
