    General Introduction
    Air preheater is a kind of equipment which can improve the heat exchange performance of the boiler and reduce the energy consumption. The function of the air preheater is to heat the flue gas discharged from the tail flue of the boiler and transmit it to the air before entering the boiler through the radiator, so as to preheat the air to a certain temperature.
    The air preheater is generally used for coal-fired boilers in power station.It can be divided into tubular type and rotary type. The rotary type can be further divided into wind hood rotary type and heating surface rotary type.Power stations usually use the heating surface rotary air preheater. Generally, the application in boilers is two-compartment, three-compartment and four-compartment, among which the four-compartment is more commonly used in CFB boilers.




    1. Improve and enhance combusion
    The air through the air preheater enters the boiler inside, and speed up the fuel processes of drying, ignition and combusion, and makes sure the stable combusion inside the bouler, and improve the combusion effieciency.
    2.Enforce heat tranfer
    Due to the improvement and enforcement of combusion in the boiler, as well as the increase of hot wind temperature when entering the boiler, the average temperature inside is increased, too. This can enforce the radiation heat transferrring in the boiler.
    3.Reduce the boiler loss, decrease the exhaust gas temperature and improve the thermal efficiency of the boiler.
    Because the combusion inside is stable, and the radiation heat transferring is enhanced, it can reduce the loss caused by chemical incomplete combusion. On the other hand, the air preheater take the advantage of gas flue heat to further reduce the exhaust loss, which thus improves the thermal efficiency. According to experience, when the air tempeature inside the air preheater is increased by 1.5 degrees, the temperature of gas flue can be decreased by 1 degree. If installed, the air preheater can preheat the air by 150-160 degrees, then can reduce the temperature of gas flue by 110-120 degrees, and increase the thermal efficiency by 7-7.5% as well as save fuel by 11-12%.
    4.the heat air can be the fuel desiccant.
    For layer-burning boilers, it is okay to use fuel whose miosture and ash content is high when preheated air is available. For power station boilers, hot air is an important desiccant for fat power system and medium to convey coal powder.

    According to the way of heat transfer, the air preheater can be divided into two types:heat conduction type and regeneration type.Among the heat conduction type, tubular air preheater is most commonly used.With the increase of boiler parameters and capacity, the heating surface of tubular air preheater increases, which brings difficulties to the arrangement of the tail heating surface. Therefore, most of the large capacity units adopt a compact, light weight rotary air preheater. Air preheater is generally divided into three types: plate type, rotary type and tubular type.

    The main heat transfer component of tubular air preheater is thin-walled steel tube. The tubular air preheaters are mostly cubic. The steel tubes are arranged vertically and staggered with each other. Both ends are welded on the upper and lower tube sheets.The tubular air preheater is equipped with an intermediate tube sheet in the tube box. The flue gas passes through the preheater up and down the pipe, while the air passes through the preheater horizontally to complete heat transfer.
    Tubular air preheater is widely used in power station boilers and industrial boilers because of its advantages of good sealing, high heat transfer efficiency, easy manufacturing and processing. The shortcomings of tubular air preheater are large volume, easy ash plugging of steel tube content, difficult cleaning and easy wear and tear at flue gas inlet.

    Ancillary system


    Rotary air preheater mainly includeds fire alarm(hot spot detection), clearance adjustment, frequency conversion control, lubricating oil system, rotor stop alarm system, soot blowing and cleaning system, etc..

    The key problems affecting the performance of rotary air preheater are air leakage, corrosion and ash plugging. In the design of tubular air preheater, air flow rate and tube box size should be reasonably selected, or vibration isolation board should be installed along the direction of air flow to prevent cavity resonance.Vibration isolation board also have the function of eliminating noise. Air leakage of rotary air preheater is an important problem. Measures should be taken in desgin, manufacturing, installation and operation to keep reasonable sealing gap between dynamic and static components in thermal state.When burning high sulfur fuel, both tubular and rotary preheater are prone to corrosion and ash plugging.The preventive measures include:installing heater or hot air recirculation at the air inlet; using low oxygen combustion or mixing combustion additives to reduce the production of SO2 gas in flue gas; blowing ash regularly to keep the heating surface clean; using corrosion-resistant materials on the heating surface, etc.
