Burning fuels that contain alkali metals sodium (Na), potassium (K), and calcium (Ca) can result in slagging, fouling and corrosion which reduces boiler efficiency and decreases heat transfer rates. Aurora™ works as an alkali sorbent, capturing these alkali metals and incorporating them into compounds which remain solid at boiler temperatures then exit the boiler as fly or bottom ash. This results in a more complete combustion where deposits are more easily managed or even eliminated. Aurora™ improves heat rate, ash fusion temperature, maintains steam temperatures, and decreases chlorine-induced corrosion to increase boiler availability and power generation. A variety of different boiler types ranging from 2.5 MW capacity to 870 MW capacity have all benefited.
