- A key factor in the successful design and operation of coal gasification systems is the ability to control and mitigate ash-related problems. Some of the major ash-related problems are slag flow control, slag attack on the refractory, ash deposition on heat-transfer surfaces, corrosion and erosion of equipment materials, and emissions control. Such problems are closely tied to the abundance and association of the inorganic components in coal and the gasification conditions. The CABRE project is a three-year program designed to investigate the transformations and properties of coal ash in reducing environment systems. The CABRE project is organized into a three-task structure which is the backbone of the project`s strength. Task 1, Analytical Methods Development, has concentrated on the special needs of analyzing samples produced under a reducing atmosphere as opposed to the more often studied combustion systems. Task 2, Inorganic Partitioning and Ash Deposition, has focused on the production of gasification-type samples under closely controlled conditions for the study of inorganic partitioning that may lead to deposition. Task 3, Ash and Slag Physical Properties, has made large gains in the areas of sintering and strength development of coal ashes under reducing atmospheres for the evaluation of deposition problems.
