Stamet solids pump feeds coal into 210 psig in a DOE supported project

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper summarizes the efforts of Stamet, Incorporated, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to produce an innovative feed system for pressurized combustion power systems. DOE has been fostering the development of pressurized fluidized-bed combustion power systems which are 45 percent efficient and can deliver electricity at 20 percent below the cost of conventional power systems. A major capital cost factor in pressurized systems is the coal and limestone feed systems. DOE has been attempting to reduce the capital and operating cost of these components for a number of years. In 1995, Stamet, Incorporated, completed a 2-year Small Business ... continued below

A major capital cost factor in pressurized systems is the coal and limestone feed systems. DOE has been attempting to reduce the capital and operating cost of these components for a number of years. In 1995, Stamet, Incorporated, completed a 2-year Small Business Innovative Research grant from DOE and produced a precision metering feeder capable of delivering coal into a vessel at 210 pounds per square inch, gauge, ({approximately} 14 atmospheres). The feeder is an elegantly simple machine with one moving part. The product provides continuous metering of fuel against pressure with instantaneous rate control.
